PBA to resume games on Tuesday

The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) will resume its games on Tuesday, November 3.

This is to ensure that the PBA complies with the protocols recommended by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID).

With the health and safety of each of the 350 participants as the PBA’s top priorities in the bubble, the organization commits to comply with the latest recommendations from the IATF.

Firstly, the completion of 10-day isolation of the Blackwater player from the date of swabbing before resuming the games;

Then the completion of 14-day quarantine and testing before entering the bubble for all those who will test positive moving forward; and

Finally, the appointment of an independent marshal who shall oversee and ensure compliance with health and safety protocols, as recommended by the DILG.

As an additional safety measure and in coordination with the Clark Development Corporation (CDC), the PBA will be assigned its separate temporary quarantine facility within the Clark Freeport Zone.

These additional protocols from health experts are put in place to ensure the integrity of the bubble.

The PBA reiterated that the bubble has not been breached, but they must always strengthen protocols in consultation with the IATF and NTF to ensure the safety of everyone in the bubble.
