PSL STATEMENT ON COVID-19 MATCH DAY PROTOCOL
There have been suggestions, after the President’s address on Thursday 30 September 2021, that it might be possible to allow a limited number of spectators to attend upcoming PSL matches.
Unfortunately, the new Disaster Management Act regulations continue to prohibit spectators at matches.
Section 69(10) of the regulations requires “strict adherence” to the provisions which have limited those permitted at matches to persons strictly necessary for the match.
Sub-section 69 (10) (d) expressly confirms that “no spectators are allowed at the venue of the sports match” and subsections 12 and 13 make attendance (and permitting attendance) a criminal offence.
It is important that all PSL supporters and fans understand this.
The League Covid-19 protocol and the process which regulates the persons who are permitted to attend matches will remain in place until such time as there are new regulatory changes.
Does it give you any indication that, like SAFA and SARU (and afaik CSA), that they are for it? PSL won't even let media in to cover matches.That is just the position of government which they have to abide by, it does not imply they are opposed to what is being said.
I honestly cannot understand why they wouldn't support it.Does it give you any indication that, like SAFA and SARU (and afaik CSA), that they are for it? PSL won't even let media in to cover matches.
It will work same way as overseas like many other covid things.I am still curious how this process will work at public venues, and how the new digital vaccine certificates are scanned and authenticated by the venue owners, and whether there is an onus on the venue for curbing any spread of the virus?
If people only have to show their record of vaccination, SMS or certificate, then it will defeat the mechanism of public health and security.
Interesting opinion, considering over 80% of the country is not fully vaccinated and the vaccine doesn't seem to protect you from infection anyway. The main thing is that having had the vaccine you'll supposedly have milder symptoms, but since you can get infected anyway, I don't see why it makes any difference being around unvaccinated people. I'm "fully vaccinated" but I frankly couldn't care less whether anyone around me is or isn't.I think that the people who would feel more comfortable outnumber the people that would be put off by the requirement.
I for one, would not go to a public event that does not require vaccinations.

Scanned at the gate/door, shows vaxxed with id pic. Still the silly rules in place, like distance, x% capacity.of stadium.
It was never about public health/safety, but everything to inconvience the unvaxxed to get them to vax.
In theory I assume it would work as follows:I know this, but maybe I should have said how private owned public venues will grant access, how they can confirm that the COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or the Digital Certificate is authentic, and what kind of reporting needs to happen.
In the UK, for example, they use their NHS mobile app. I want to know what we are going to use, and how we are planning on globally standardising our system?
This is a question I have long sought, but I will await to see the solution in practice.
I have read that some populations are concerned of which information of their health records may now be publicly accessible.
I am vaccinated so from a personal health perspective I am not concerned, but I am curious in finding out whether this system can be gamed, and whether some public venues will be gaming the system themselves for getting their seats filled.
