The GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association have announced that clubs in Laois, Kildare and Offaly can reopen facilities and recommence training – on a restricted basis.
The decision was made tonight following a meeting of the GAA’s Covid Advisory Group.
The group say they are satisfied that to date, the incidence of reported positive cases among those playing GAA in Laois, Offaly and Kildare is minuscule.
It is no higher or lower than the general incidence among GAA clubs nationwide.
They say: “It is the view of the group that Gaelic Games members and clubs in those counties should continue to follow the government guidelines as laid out.
“In that context, it has been agreed that while the restrictions remain in place:
“Outdoor facilities can reopen.
“No games are permitted involving clubs from these counties.
“Training may continue, but should be on a non-contact basis and in groups of no more than 15 people.
“Indoor meetings should involve no more than 6 people from no more than three households with two metre social distancing.
“Government travel restrictions should be adhered to.”
