Some Sports to Resume May First

Kevin Bernard

Athletes have been clamoring for the resumption of some sports, despite a steady increase in the number of COVID-19 cases.  Last Friday, a group held a press conference in Belize City to voice their discontent with the Ministry of Sports for not pushing hard enough on their behalf.  Well, it seems that Minister Kevin Bernard was listening.  On Tuesday, he presented a Cabinet paper and today he told News Five about the pending return of non-contact and recreational sports, as well as training exercises for contact sports.

“Mr. Speaker, I start my brief presentation today with some welcome news.  On May first, just over a week from today we will open up sports in the country, although under strict guidelines.  I would not wish to preempt the SI, but I can say that non-contact sports will return to normal, as will recreational sports, while contact sports will be for training purposes only, for a period of time.  We will get into more details in the coming week, but God willing we will return to complete normal by the start of 2022.”
