Minister of Education, Youth and Sport Hang Chuon Naron has said the government allows sporting competitions and other activities such as exercise classes in public places to resume nationwide.
He said participants in all of the activities must adhere to the Covid-19 preventive measures and the organisers must follow the ministry's standard operating procedures.
In a letter issued on December 2, Chuon Naron said the permission to resume sporting activities came with the approval of Prime Minister Hun Sen.
“People in charge of overseeing gyms, venues and sports centres have to ensure that the number of people engaged in the activities is in line with health measures and that they keep personal distance, wash their hands and maintain good hygiene all of the time, especially in the restroom,” Chuon Naron said.
All locations holding sporting events have to provide hand sanitizer, masks and a machine to take temperatures. Staff must be assigned to stand at the entrance to observe the temperatures of people as they enter.
Only people who are fully vaccinated along with a booster shot will be allowed to take part in sports at this time.
