Ministry gives nod for sports and recreational activities to resume under strict SOP

PETALING JAYA: Sports and recreational activities for health, fitness, training and matches are now allowed in areas under the conditional movement control order (CMCO) and recovery movement control order (RMCO).

The Youth and Sports Ministry in a statement yesterday however said permission must be sought from the relevant authorities.

For tournaments or competitions at national level such as the Malaysian Football League (M-League), Malaysian Hockey League (MHL) and Sepak Takraw League (STL), police clearance is required for inter-state travel.

The competitions must also be held in accordance with the Sports Bubble Model and without the presence of spectators.

Those who want to organise domestic and international-level tournaments must get prior approval from the Youth and Sports Ministry.

Centralised training for the Malaysian Football League, MHL, STL as well as centralised training under the National Sports Council and the respective state sports council on a ‘quarantine camp’ basis are also allowed.

For group activities such as yoga or aerobics, participants must remain in their respective space at 50% capacity of the area concerned and under strict supervision.

However, activities that involve large gatherings such as fun runs, fun rides, marathon and triathlons are not allowed.

Meanwhile, the ministry said the SOPs are slightly different in Sabah and Sarawak. The public are advised to refer to the National Security Council’s website for more information.
