Our prevention programme, besides the regular testing of players and support staff, is predicated on personal hygiene measures and creating a sanitised ecosystem. COVID-19 compliance managers at each venue have assumed responsibility to ensure all the elements of the protocol are implemented," CSA Chief Medical Officer, Dr Shuaib Manjra said in an official statement.
The plans for the commencement of training for the women's High-Performance Training Squad are underway and will be relayed as soon as possible. (ANI)
