PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
UPDATE: SPORTING FACILITIES REMAIN CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Balmain, Couva, 19th March: Following further consultations with the Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs, the Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (SporTT) has decided that all sporting facilities under its purview will remain closed until further notice.
Already facilities have been sanitised and this process is ongoing. We are trying to ensure that there is no possibility of the virus being present. Additionally, SporTT will be giving access to our sanitised facilities to persons who have qualified or are deemed potential qualifiers in the still upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympic games.
SporTT has been and will continue to be in contact with the sporting governing bodies to this effect and chairman Douglas Camacho has said that, ‘the closure in the first instance was a sensible decision and the continued closure is in the best interest of the country.’
