GAA re-iterates coronavirus training restrictions
By Oisín McGovern
The GAA has reminded its members to strictly adhere to the training restrictions currently put in place.
In a letter sent to clubs and county boards, the Association asked its members to abide by the restrictions in order to contain the spread of coronavirus.
Players and members have been urged to adhere to social isolation by not congregating in gyms or training pitches, even in small numbers.
The letter said: “Team managers, backroom personnel and players at all levels have not only a duty of care to each other but also to the wider community around them at this time.”
“It is expected therefore that county and club teams across the country will adhere to both the letter and spirit of what has been asked of them at this challenging time.”
Sporting fixtures across the country at all levels and grades have ground to a halt amid the ongoing threat of coronavirus.
The letter was signed off by the GAA’s Medical, Scientific and Welfare Committee, the Gaelic Player’s Association and the Gaelic Athletic Medical Association (the representative body for Team Doctors).
