National Sports Day 2022 protocol announced by organizing committee
Doha: The National Sports Day Organizing Committee today announced that this year’s activities will only be held in open-air settings in order to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid 19). In team sports, the number of participants in each activity must not exceed 15 vaccinated people.
Individual sports are limited to five people, including those who are not completely vaccinated and children under the age of 12. They must, however, produce documentation of a rapid antigen test performed within 24 hours of their participation in the event.
The Committee encouraged everyone to keep a physical space of at least 1 metre between themselves and others. Participants and spectators must wear masks at all times, except when they are playing sports where masks might make it hard to breathe.
Sports training equipment may be utilised in parks and sports pathways, among other areas, according to Ministry of Public Health guidelines.
Personal items, such as drinks, should not be shared, according to the organisers. In all sports activity arenas, hand sanitisers must be supplied. Only individuals with the green ‘Ehteraz’ will be permitted to take part, and those who have been infected with Covid-19 will be permitted only if they have fully recovered.
They must have a PCR or antigen-negative result, and their isolation must have concluded on the seventh day after that negative result. The EHTERAZ should be green and the results should be negative.
Each sporting event will have a defined percentage of spectators authorised to attend, with a green “Ehteraz” permitting them to enter the stands and fan zones.
For their own protection, non-vaccinated people, especially those over 60 years old or with health issues that makes them vulnerable, should avoid sports arenas where spectators are present. The Protocol document is available for download at msy.gov.qa.
