Covid-19: return of the gauge in stadiums and halls, haro on refreshments

by archysport

With the speech of Jean Castex and Olivier Véran on the means to counter the 5th wave of Covid and the contagious variant Omicron, the world of sport expected a new turn of the screw. It will be.

As of Monday January 3, in the stadiums as elsewhere, we will witness the return of the gauges which punctuated sporting life between summer 2020 and summer 2021. Large gatherings, sporting or otherwise, will be limited to 2000 people in indoors and 5,000 outdoors for a period of at least three weeks.

This means that the organizers (for example Vannes, which must host the PSG in the 16th finals of the Coupe de France on January 3 or the athletics meeting in Paris on the 22) will have to adapt to this new constraint and reduce their accommodation capacity.

“We are in a race against time,” explained the Prime Minister, who insists on the terms of caution and vigilance and advocates the massive use of vaccination for those who have not yet had recourse.

The refreshment stalls closed until further notice

To avoid the spread of the virus (and the additional opportunities to remove the mask in places where it is already difficult to enforce its wearing) the consumption of food and drink will be prohibited in all sports facilities. The refreshments are therefore closed until further notice. For ten days, it was already no longer possible to eat standing in the enclosures offering hospitality.

We will therefore have to get used to the sparse stands for at least a few weeks. In Ligue 1 for example, since the resumption of the season last August, the decision was up to the prefects alone whether or not to limit the presence of spectators in the stadiums.
