“Finally, with regard to sporting activity, activities classified by the Directorate-General for Health (DGS) as low risk will resume, physical activity outdoors, up to four people, and gyms will be able to reopen, except for group classes, which will continue without being able to take place in the gymnasiums “, said the prime minister, in a press conference.
According to António Costa, the practice of low-risk sports, which include, among others, tennis, golf, paddle tennis, surfing and swimming, is not subject to any mandatory testing by SARS-CoV-2.
Regarding the presence of the public in sports venues, the Prime Minister considered that this is “a risk that must be avoided”.
“Obviously, there are no public events, because there is an increased risk of bringing people together and bringing people together a risk for the transmission of the disease. It is a risk that has to be avoided, and we will continue to avoid it,” he said.
The phased decommissioning plan, announced on March 11, foresees, if the numbers allow, the return of medium risk modalities and physical activity outdoors with groups of up to six people from April 19.
