UPDATE ON COVID-19


Dear ASA Members,

By now all of us are aware of the worsening situation caused by the second wave of Covid 19. We were hoping to have resumed our normal events calendar by now but unfortunately we now have to deal with high infection rates.

By now all of us are aware of the worsening situation caused by the second wave of Covid 19. We were hoping to have resumed our normal events calendar by now but unfortunately we now have to deal with high infection rates.To combat the situation, the government has put the whole country under adjusted level 3 emergency measures.

ASA unfortunately cannot ignore the dire situation that we find ourselves in, and that is the worsening infection and increasing death rates. The major concern is that the new Covid 19 strain seems to be affecting a large number of young people.

Therefore in the interest of saving lives ASA is now suspending all athletics events for the next 2 weeks.

The decision affects the ASA Cross Country Trials which were scheduled for Potchefstroom this weekend 23 January 2021, which are now also postponed indefinitely. A new date will be determined and announced in due course.

ASA will review this decision after 7 February in line with government pronouncements and in continued consultation with medical experts.

We hope the situation will improve for us to resume our full calendar after the next 2 weeks. Training is permitted under our safety protocols.

 

Kind Regards

Terrence Magogodela
