Professional sport

Professional athletes are allowed to have their training to prepare for future events at both indoor and outdoor sports grounds in unlimited numbers of people. However, they are also required to follow hygienic measures - keeping their distance and regularly washing their hands. They do not have to wear a face mask or respirator during the sport, but after the end of the training, it is necessary to put it on again under regulations. A professional athlete is a person who performs sport as his or her primary job or as a business and other similar activity. Professional athletes must also be tested regularly according to prescribed rules.
