CIRCULAR 3 OF ASA 2021 – UPDATE ON COVID 19.
About a week ago we were faced with the devastating second wave of the Covid 19 pandemic
spearheaded by the new variant of the virus. In order to play our part to suppress the devastating
second wave and therefore saving lives, ASA made the very difficult and painful decision to
postpone all Athletics events for two weeks.
We thank Members for adhering to the ASA decision to postpone all events during the period
when Covid 19 was spreading at an alarming speed. We can now report that the infection rates
are significantly declining in the country and the recovery rate improving.
ASA is now able to return to competition and will resume our Athletics calendar from Saturday, 6
February 2021. Our return to play will obviously be held under the strict ASA protocols and as per
the national regulations which dictate the adherence to the protocols of the health authorities.
ASA stresses on the importance of social distancing, washing of hands, sanitizing and wearing of
masks and adherence to all health protocols under the guidance of the compliance officers of the
local health authority.
