The Grand Committee of Papua's National Sports Week (PB PON) ensured that a series of inaugurations of venues and activities in order for the national event to be held in 2021 will be held virtually.
The decision was according to the Daily Chairman of National Sports Week Committee Papua Yunus Wonda because he did not want any new cluster (corona) after inauguration activities in the framework of National Sports Week XX 2021.
"To that day, we extend our sincere apologies to the Papuans who were unable to attend the inauguration ceremony in the framework of National Sports Week XX".
"We ask the whole community to watch from home, the inauguration ceremony will be conducted live from a number of national and local TV, national and local radio and social media," explained Yunus Wonda in Jayapura, Monday (19/10/2020).
Restrictions on attendance so that no crowds are feared violating health protocols. Therefore, all those who are allowed to enter the Papua Bangkit Stadium, both officials and committee, must take a rapid test.
This is so that absolutely no new clusters appear in the future.
A series of National Sports Week inauguration activities, namely the inauguration of nine National Sports Week venues, the launch of the Papuan Indigenous data (OAP), the launch of the countdown to the implementation of the National Sports Week, which is 362 days, the naming of the Lukas Enembe Main Stadium which was previously called the Papua Bangkit Stadium in Kampung Harapan and the change in the name of Sentani Airport to be Theys Hiyo Eluay Airport simultaneously on October 20, 2020.
