Québec will gradually remove restrictions on outdoor sports such as baseball and football from June 8. The game may be held at the end of this month.
Sports Minister Isabelle Charest said: “We allow all outdoor team sports.”
The competition may resume at the end of June, but it is subject to public health approval in guidelines prepared by various sports federations.
However, the former Olympic medalist believes that athletes should not expect real conflicts that were known before the pandemic.
“You have to realize that sports will not be performed in the same way this summer. You have to realize that there are many adjustments to be made. But I am still confident and having fun,” said her chefs François Legault and Dr. Horacio Arruda.
For parents who hesitated to register their children on the sports team this summer due to health restrictions, Minister Charles replied that young people need to move and play with their friends.
She insisted: “Maybe this year (parents) reading in the stands is not so fun, but for the children, the benefits are guaranteed.”
The Prime Minister and the National Director of Public Health are even more encouraged by the shape that baseball, football and even hockey games will take in the coming weeks.
Dr. Arruda believes that the risk of contamination is much smaller when intersecting with teammates or opponents for a long time.
Who knows, it can even reduce estrangement from society. He said at a press conference on the spread of COVID-19 in Quebec: “Maybe one day, the distance will drop to one meter, especially when young people are at a younger age, because the risk of disease is even smaller.”
The Prime Minister is a hockey fan, and he is optimistic about this, including professional sports.
François Legot insisted: “These instructions will continue to evolve, and then I hope to see the capital in the next few months, see the impact, and then see the Canadians in actual combat.”
