The Chinese Volleyball Association (CVA) conducts strict protocols to protect the players of the female national team from getting infected with the coronavirus.


In China, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak that has started at the beginning of January, the players of the women’s volleyball team are in rigid isolation in the preparations for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

To maintain the safety of the reigning Olympic champions, the CVA has followed protocols issued by the Chinese Olympic Committee (COC). Sixteen athletes at a grouping in the Beijing Training Center are, practically, isolated from the rest of the population. The CVA controls who enters and leaves the facility. Only one training venue is opened. The visit from the outside is extremely limited.

According to the COC, the medical staff pays attention to the physical condition of each team member, conducting strict prevention by measuring the body temperature of the athletes twice a day. Disinfection of the training equipment and players after each practice is mandatory, and the central air-conditioning in the space where the team members live is turned off. In terms of a diet, the intake of fruits and vegetables is increased to enhance team members’ immunity.

The head coach Lang Ping instructed players to use this time of being in quarantine to strengthen their physical condition.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
