Track and Field, Tennis, Horse Racing Allowed To Proceed In Ontario
It looks like some sports will be allowed to proceed in Chatham-Kent as of Tuesday, May 19.
Those include non-team sports such as track and field, tennis, and horse racing.
The Ontario Government released the following:
“Seasonal businesses and recreational activities for individual or single competitors, including training and sport competitions conducted by a recognized national or provincial sport organization. This includes indoor and outdoor non-team sport competitions that can be played while maintaining physical distancing and without spectators, such as tennis, track and field and horse racing.”
These events will still be free from spectators to ensure large groups do not congregate.
“Because of the collective efforts of all Ontarians, we are making real and significant progress in our battle against COVID-19, with the number of new cases each day shrinking,” said Minister Christine Elliott Elliott. “As we move forward with caution, public health experts will closely monitor each stage of reopening to carefully assess the evolution of the outbreak, so we can benefit from the best practices and lessons learned across Ontario.”
