Malawi will bring fans back to stadiums under strict Covid-19 guidelines  as the top flight league is to kick-off, the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 has confirmed.

Minister of Health Khumbize Kandodo Chiponda, who is  co-chairperson of the Taskforce, said they will allow supporters will be allowed but only half the capacity of the venue to ensure physical distancing.

Chiponda said if spectators  will adhere to the rules, it could be the beginning of a path back to normality.

“Spectators will be required to observe Covid-19 preventative measures  including wearing face mask, washing hands and physical distancing,” said Chiponda.

FAM Covid-19 Task Force chairperson Chimango Munthali, who is also FAM executive committee member, said they keep the numbers of people in the stadium within the required maximum as per government requirement.
