In a statement released today by the Ministry of Youth and Sports. It stated that in accordance with the advice from the HPA the ministry has decided to grant permission for sports related activities to be conducted on islands without any monitoring cases. And on islands which had monitoring cases, the permission will be granted after a 14 day period.
