The decision was taken as part of inspection visits to sports facilities such as fitness centres, clubs, academies and sports events to ensure full compliance with official protocols.

The Council has urged sports facilities, training and fitness centres, academies and event organisers to strictly adhere to instructions and apply Covid-preventive measures at all times.
