  • A person may permit a place, other than a private residence or vacation accommodation, to be used for, or may provide, or may participate in group sport, if the following conditions are met:
    1. if the group sport is indoors, only two persons participate;
    2. if the group sport is outdoors, only ten persons participate;
    3. the participants maintain a distance of three metres from one another while engaged in the group sport, unless the participants reside in the same private residence;

Further PHO restrictions remain in place for sport, including the temporary suspension of competition, no spectators, and limits on travel for sport.
