Sai has taken this decision after getting permission from the Karnataka government, which has been battling the growing cases of Corona virus for some time. In a statement issued by Sai on Saturday, it said, “The standard operating procedure (SOP) issued by SAI and the state government will be strictly followed, in addition to all the rules related to Kovid-19 in the camp.” On reaching Bengaluru, athletes, coaches and support staff will be screened for Kovid-19 to ensure that all those involved in the camp remain at risk of corona virus.
Players and support staff coming from different parts of the country and abroad will be in segregation for two weeks inside the campus before starting the practice. They will be tested first after arriving here and they will be tested again after the separation is over.
The players spent nearly four months in camp due to the nationwide lockdown. The players were given a four-week break after the restrictions were relaxed and they left for their hometown on 19 June.
Sai said, “In view of the increasing number of cases of Kovid-19 in Bangalore, all athletes, coaches and support staff visiting here will have to follow the segregation rules of the Ministry of Home Affairs, Ministry of Health and Government of Karnataka.”
Sai’s Bangalore administration had already conducted online workshops for athletes, coaches and support staff, detailing the precautionary steps to be followed inside the campus during the camp.
