Hanoi is only testing Covid-19 on people with suspicious signs and symptoms. Spectators watching the match live will not be required to take a Covid-19 test.
The Hanoi People’s Committee has just issued a plan to prevent and contain the Covid-19 epidemic for the 31st SEA Games in the city.
The plan is to prevent, control and prevent the spread of the epidemic, in order to safely serve the 31st SEA Games; Respond proactively and effectively to Covid-19 epidemic situations while organizing and creating maximum facilitation for the activities of the 31st SEA Games.
The principle of epidemic prevention and control is that cases with a positive SARS-CoV-2 test or with Covid-19 do not participate in the competition, serve the 31st SEA Games and carry out isolation and treatment according to the instructions.
Those who have been in close contact with a case with a positive SARS-CoV-2 test or with Covid-19 during the competition or service period will be sampled for testing and treated according to instructions.
Hanoi regularly requires the wearing of masks and the use of hand sanitizer; limit mass gatherings in public areas; limit leaving the accommodation if not necessary; make a one-way trip from the place of residence to the place of practice, competition and vice versa.
Only collect samples for rapid antigen testing of SARS-CoV-2 for people with signs and symptoms suspected of having Covid-19 or who have close contact with infected people. Spectators attending live matches are not required to take samples for testing.
At the property, make sure to keep each area or hotel separate to limit contact between sports teams and strangers.
In addition, there is a separate dining area or a reasonable sitting area; in case of emergency keep a safe distance, there should be one-way traffic; provide a temporary medical isolation room when detecting suspected cases of Covid-19 infection.
At the competition location, ensure a clear division of the area and strict access control to minimize contact between different groups.
Sometimes the number of employees in each area must be kept to the minimum required; provide separate corridors for athletes, the technical staff, the referees, the competition organizers; provide a temporary medical isolation room when detecting suspected cases of Covid-19 infection.
The organizers will disinfect the inside of the competition area (for indoor competitions) the day before the competition. During the time of the competition, the local organizing committee arranged for personnel to regularly clean and disinfect the contact areas twice a day.
Based on the development of the Covid-19 epidemic at the time of the organization of the competition, Hanoi proposed three scenarios for the organization of the competition, including a completely closed competition; limitation of the number of spectators; full audience.
The plan also describes how to arrange personnel, equipment and report information to ensure epidemic prevention and control for the 31st SEA Games.
