The Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging and Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) and the Department of Health (DOH) recommended the postponement of Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) matches starting October 30.

“In compliance with the recommendation of the IATF-EID Technical Working Group and the DOH Advisory Group of Experts and to ensure the integrity and safety of the PBA Bubble, the league is postponing the games starting today, October 30 until the new protocols proposed by the IATF and DOH are out in place,” the PBA said in a statement.

Last October 21, the PBA reported that a referee tested positive for coronavirus disease (Covid-19) after undergoing a mandatory swab test. On Sunday, the league confirmed another positive case of a Blackwater player.

They, however, yielded a negative result in succeeding antigen and RT-PCR swab tests.

Last month, the PBA secured a “provisional authority” from the government to stage a “bubble season” at the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga starting October 11.

Under the bubble concept, a player or coach must stay in one area for the duration of the season.
