Community sport restrictions to be relaxed?
Media release from government is pretty vague, what does it mean for sport and specifically basketball? Would have thought there was more of a chance transmitting virus than a wedding unless they're talking about tennis or badminton. And if social basketball is allowed, does this mean there could be a chance NBL1 could theoretically start again and have a condensed season without crowds, even juniors with a parent spectating and then leaving immediately. Sounds like crap, wish they could go into more detail.
Community sport and small gatherings are among the activities being considered for relaxed restrictions in three weeks.
Chief Medical Officer Professor Brendan Murphy said he did not want to pre-empt health experts' deliberations but hinted some smaller gatherings may soon be allowed.
"Things like community sport, some retail measures, all of those things will be in the mix," he said.
“I personally feel that community sport is a really important thing and there are ways to make it safer, the National Cabinet will have to weigh up the public health risks vs the clear benefits of re-establishing community sport.”
Large gatherings such as weddings and major events are not being considered at this time.
