COVID-19 Sports Guidance to Curb the Spread of the Virus

The COVID-19 pandemic that has affected every part of the globe disrupted nearly everything. At a point, almost all gatherings and social meetings, including sports, were halted. However, through the help of world health organisations, governments are finding a way of reviving their economies and at the same time protecting their citizens. People have to strictly follow the set measures to curb the spread of Coronavirus.

In this post, you will learn how sports can help curb the virus’s rapid spread.


One of the successful ways of preventing the spread of Coronavirus is through physical distancing. However, this may be impossible in sports where the athletes and players have to get into contact.

To ensure that coaching staff, players and other stakeholders do not spread the virus, everyone accessing the playing ground, training ground and other sports facilities should be tested regularly. The tests can be conducted weekly and when someone is suspected to be infected.


Although sports are a way of interaction and the fun of games is cheering teams, if fans crowd in stadiums, there is a risk of rapidly spreading the virus. The games can still be played behind closed doors where fans closely follow the games through live streaming. A few staff and players tested and proved to be negative can be allowed into the grounds.


Coronavirus can stay on surfaces for several days. When an infected person spits the virus on the ground through saliva or mucus, anyone who touches the surface is at a risk of contracting the virus. Therefore, fumigating playing grounds, changing rooms, and other facilities can reduce the virus’s chances of spreading. The facilities can be sprayed before and after people access it.
