The Jordan Olympic Committee (JOC) has met with the Ministry of Youth to coordinate efforts in a bid to reintroduce sport safely following the Covid-19 enforced stoppage.
All sporting activity stopped on March 14, but after promising signs that the Kingdom is getting on top of the virus, both organisations are working together to plan for sport to gradually start up once again.
The JOC has presented an economic and social impact plan to the Government, which has highlighted the positive role that the sporting sector has on Jordanian society, from the number of people employed to the health benefits of participation.
National sports federations have also been involved in the planning with a commitment from all to strictly adhere to any guidelines in place for a return.
“Since the wise decision to cease sporting activity was made, we have worked closely with the Ministry of Youth to closely follow the situation and monitor the effect that it has had on the sports sector as a whole,” said Nasser Majali, JOC Secretary General.
“We are now making progress with the Government to bring the sector back by committing to all health measures and restrictions deemed necessary.”
The Government, Majali pointed out, understands the importance of the sports sector.
Meanwhile, the JOC Executive Office has held a series of meetings to put a plan in place for the next phase in order to restrict the impact of lockdown.
