Created : 14 March 2020
All sporting facilities will be closed from midnight Sunday, in light of COVID-19.
In a statement, the Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago (SporTT) said following consultations with the Ministry of Sports, it will be closing all sporting facilities under its purview from midnight Sunday 15, until midnight Sunday 22.
SporTT said this means that all events and training activities carded for this week are now cancelled.
It noted that the action comes as the entire country adjusts to measures that are aimed at preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
The company said the downtime would ensure that all facilities can be properly sanitised and prevent the community spread of the virus via mass gatherings.
It said it will review the decision during the week and again at the end of the closure period.
