Education Minister calls on sports movement to apply health precautionary measures

The Minister of Education, Youth and Sports, Christelle Lehartel, welcomes the initiative taken by the Polynesian Rugby Federation to temporarily suspend its training and competitions as a precaution, following the recent announcement of additional positive cases of Covid-19 in Tahiti.

The minister called on Monday all covered sports establishments, outdoor establishments, and holiday and leisure centers to scrupulously apply hygiene and social distancing measures, in particular:

Frequent hand washing with soap or a hydroalcoholic solution;
Snacks and hydration must be managed individually (personalized bottles, etc.);
The exchange or sharing of personal effects should be prohibited;
The use of personal equipment is preferred, failing which, common equipment is cleaned and disinfected, before and after use;
Wearing a mask actually makes it difficult to practice a large number of sports disciplines. However, it is justified in certain situations where the distancing measures could not be strictly observed.

A press release detailing these measures was already released on July 20 ( inviting the sports movement, youth and popular education, with the help of the guide to best practices in pandemic situations or pandemic risks published by the Polynesian Youth Union (UPJ).
