Dear Athletes, Officials, Affiliates
SINGAPORE UNDERWATER FEDERATION: SUSPENSION OF TRAINING PROGRAMMES FOR ALL SPORTS UNTIL 30 APRIL 2020
The Ministry of Health (“MOH”) issued an advisory on 24 March 2020, titled “Tighter measures to minimise further spread of COVID-19”. Additionally, Sport Singapore (SportSG) has also issued an advisory on 24 March 2020, titled “Advisory to the sporting fraternity”.
In view of the developing COVID-19 situation, and the Multi-Ministry Taskforce’s decision to “enforce stricter measures that would limit gatherings outside of work and school to 10 persons or fewer”, the Singapore Underwater Federation (SUF) would like to announce the suspension of all of SUF’s training programmes for all sports with immediate effect, until 30 April 2020.
Factors such as the vulnerability of our athletes, and the rise of unlinked COVID-19 cases in Singapore, have been taken into consideration, in addition to the advisories. With the safety of our athletes as paramount importance, SUF has had to make this difficult decision.
Safety and health of all remains SUF’s top priority
At SUF, the safety and health of our athletes, our officials and members of the public, is our top priority. Please continue to exercise the necessary precautions, such as regular hand-washing and social distancing. If you are not feeling well, please see a doctor. Together, we will ride through this storm and come out of it stronger.
Please refer to go.gov.sg/mohupdates for latest updates. If you have any questions, please contact the relevant sports officer or call 6265 6358.
Thank you very much.
