Jakarta Youth and Sport Agency (Dispora) returns to close indoor and outdoor sport facilities due to re-implementation of Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) in Jakarta.
" Although it is closed and not used, our sport facilities will be maintained and sprayed with disinfectant"
Jakarta Dispora Head, Achmad Firdaus stated, sport centers (GOR) and Youth Sport Centers operational will be stopped until an undetermined time.
Residents, including coached athletes, who have started using outdoor sport facilities during transitional PSBB, were reminded to exercise at home.
"On the previous PSBB period, we closed all indoor and outdoor sport facilities, as well as this period. So, be sure to exercise by yourself and stay at home," he mentioned, Friday (9/18).
This temporary closure was carried out to prevent COVID-19 transmission in sport facilities.
"We don't want our sport facilities to be the new cluster and contribute to an increase in number of positive cases. So it is better to close it all," he conveyed.
However, the routine maintenance will be continued, including disinfectant spraying in all sport facilities which carried out by the officers on duty. "Although it is closed and not used, our sport facilities will be maintained and sprayed with disinfectant since we have budget for the maintenance," he said.
