Matchroom Pool 發表聲明表示目前並無計畫取消或推遲即將於直布羅陀舉行的世界花式撞球大師賽。所有球員、工作人員與球迷的健康與安全為其首要任務，並依HM直布羅陀政府在根據專家的建議之下，內閣政策已決議將限定每場次最多為100名觀眾。此外，HM直布羅陀政府亦同步頒布法規規定，抵達直布羅陀的旅客如於兩周內有造訪過高風險國家，須向有關當局報備。
Matchroom Pool 已與上述國家/地區球員聯繫，並確認無任一球員在抵達直布羅陀的14天內會到訪過上述之高風險國家。Matchroom Pool 正密切監控情勢，並將遵循世界衛生組織與HM直布羅陀政府的建議。 此後的任何新案例都將進行審查。
The health and safety of our players, staff and spectators is our main priority at all Matchroom Pool events.
Currently, there are no plans to cancel or postpone the forthcoming World Pool Masters in Gibraltar. However, following a Cabinet policy decision taken by HM Government of Gibraltar based on expert advice, the tournament will have a limit of 100 spectators per session.
In addition, HM Government of Gibraltar has issued regulations including a legal duty for travellers arriving in Gibraltar within two weeks of travel to an at-risk country to report to authorities on arrival.
The list of at-risk countries is:
- Republic of Korea
- Hong Kong
Matchroom Pool has contacted players from countries listed above and can confirm that no player will have been in one of the at-risk countries within 14 days of arrival to Gibraltar.
Matchroom Pool are closely monitoring the situation and will follow advice from the World Health Organisation and HM Government of Gibraltar. Any new cases from hereon in will be reviewed.
We would like to draw the attention of anyone who attends any of our events to the following general advice:
– Frequently clean your hands in soap and water, or with an alcohol-based hand rub. Matchroom Pool will endeavour to provide additional hand sanitizers where possible;
– If you cough or sneeze, please cover your mouth and nose with a flexed elbow or tissue – throw the tissue away immediately and wash your hands;
– Avoid contact with anyone who has a fever or cough;
– Avoid unnecessary contact with ‘high touch’ areas such as handrails, lift buttons, door handles, surfaces etc;
– If you experience difficulty breathing, have a high temperature or cough, please stay at home and contact a medical advisor by phone;
– Players are entitled, should they wish, not to shake hands or have any other form of physical contact with their opponent or officials (for example at the start and end of their match);
– Spectators are advised that during this time players may not feel comfortable interacting with fans to their usual level and so it may be more difficult to obtain autographs or pictures with players. Spectators are thanked for their understanding at this time.
