National athletes bound for the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games can now enter their respective bubble training under the strict supervision of the government.

The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC), the Department of Health and the Games and Amusements Board (GAB) have released a joint administrative order (JAO) enumerating the implementing guidelines on how athletes and their national sports associations should safely conduct a bubble-type environment for training.

Based on the order signed by PSC chair William Ramirez, GAB chair Baham Mitra and Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, contact and noncontact sports got the go-signal to train in areas placed under moderate and low-risk community quarantine classifications.
