PBA targets to resume practices on July 22, as health protocols will be implemented


The PBA hopes to resume practices by July 22 once they receive the go-signal from the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF).

All head coaches from 12 teams were present during their meeting with PBA commissioner Willie Marcial on Friday, July 10 to discuss health protocols the league will implement to protects its players from COVID-19.

Players will have to observe what the league calls as a ‘closed circuit’ bubble method in which they only have to travel from their homes to their respective training facility.

They will also have to be tested once a every ten days, which makes it thrice a month.

All coaches are on board with the proposed protocol, although Marcial will raise some concerns like five-on-five scrimmages to the board of governors on Saturday.
