HAMILTON, Bermuda – President of the Bermuda National Athletics Association (BNAA) Donna Raynor says next month’s Carifta Games, set to attract more than 600 athletes from 27 Caribbean countries, should not be affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) that is spreading across the globe.
The virus has reached Caribbean countries, with a few cases in the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Martinique, Saint Martin and Saint Barthélemy.
But as Bermuda prepares to host the 49th Carifta Games – the fifth time the island will be the location for the event – Raynor said she did not expect that the COVID-19 situation would disrupt the staging.
“As of now, all systems go for Carifta,” she said.
Countries are having their final trials…and we’re all moving ahead as if it is going to take place,” she told the Royal Gazette newspaper.
