The protocol for the return of sport: concentrations, temperature, closed door …

first_img(embed) (/ embed) The sport already knows what to expect for a return to work starting next Monday, May 4, when “federated, professional and high-level athletes” will be able to do it. That is, the footballers of First and secondthose of ACB basketball and the elite of other sports. AS has had access to the health protocol prepared by the Higher Sports Council, that today or tomorrow will become a mandatory Ministerial Health Order. It is the roadmap so that competitions can be resumed within a minimum of four weeks “when the health and sports authorities allow it.” The LaLiga horizon is set from June 12 for matchday 28. The protocol aims to trace a safe return to sports training, although from the CSD it is remembered “that zero risk does not exist and that individual behavior will determine success. ” The plan, in In line with that of LaLiga by Javier Tebas, it aims to “limit the probability of COVID-19 infection as much as possible” at the same time as combining “the economic reactivation of the sector and health security for professional and high-level sport, articulating the necessary measures, of early warning and quick reaction, in the event of any contagion appearing to mitigate its spread.” The athletes will have to concentrate in their facilities (the High Performance Centers are scheduled to reopen on May 11) or in hotels (in the case of soccer and basketball).ANDThe group of High Level Athletes, identified by the CSD, is 5,000. The federated amount to four million. And nothing is specified about it. But the conditions for return (medical examinations, facilities, concentrations …) seem only viable for the elite under the umbrella of their respective federations. The casuistry of each sport is not entered, which will generate problems. The CSD has established an ‘internal line’ to deal with all these inquiries from the federations.The tour is organized in four phases: individual or basic training, medium training, total pre-competition and competition. For the first three phases, a minimum of three to four weeks is established (until May 24 or 31). Athletes must concentrate from Phase 2 on in individual rooms, there will be temperature controls at the entrances, no material can be shared … PHASE 1: INDIVIDUAL TRAINING.-The home confinement, sports residence or temporary accommodation.

Outdoor workouts.-Obligation of gloves protectors.-In race, minimum distance of two meters because breathing “can carry viruses further.”-Training centers must have a access control with disinfection material, temperature taking and closed circuit television.–Shifts to maintain “the social distance of security” and cleanliness between each one.center_img -Before reopening, the premises will be disinfected. Cleaning of manual contact surfaces (knobs, benches …) will be done twice a day.-It will have material for athletes and workers (masks, gloves, gowns …).-The medical services of the clubs or federations will make a prior medical examination of the athlete. And, only based on the fact that it shows symptoms indicative of COVID-19, a test (PCR) will be performed. The positives, still asymptomatic, will not be able to train.-There will be no massage or physical therapy treatments.PHASE 2: MEDIUM TRAINING-Tactical trainings “not exhaustive” already group.–It is advised “in both individual and collective sports” to concentrate athletes to sleep in individual rooms as well.–Two rooms will be free to isolate possible infections. The COVID-19 test will be carried out on the entire training group and personnel with whom the infected person was in contact.-If it is necessary to leave the premises (cycling or water sports) the instructions of the previous phase will be respected.-The coach and technical team will wear a mask, gloves and they will keep a distance of two meters.-The Meals will be delivered in individual closed and disinfected containers. There will be turns.-In the changing rooms “with hyperventilated athletes” must be respected 6 meters away. They will shower in the rooms.-There will be no face-to-face technical meetings.-No material can be shared. And the one that is used as goals or obstacles or safety material (sail, motor, horse riding …) will have to be disinfected after each use and locked up.-No drinks or food will be shared.-The use of gyms will be minimized.-There will be no means of communication.-In training places the maximum capacity will be 50%.PHASE 3.
