The Minister of Sports made an impassioned plea to allow recreational sports to take place.
On Saturday and Sunday mornings, scores of men gather on open fields to play soccer and other kinds of sporting activities intended to keep their muscles taut and their lungs healthy.
The Cabinet agreed that it is to be encouraged but that every precaution must be taken to ensure that these activities do not lead to the spread of the virus.
Those who feel ill are to stay isolated in their homes; those who participate must not expose themselves, but must practice the protocols that have kept them healthy. They must all be encouraged to vaccinate.
