As the situation changes in different countries at different rates, it can  be difficult to stay on top of the exact medical advice and to know how to incorporate it into daily routines – especially as athletes start to return to training.

With the common effort of the Chairwoman of Medical Committee and its members, UIPM has prepared  the Restart Guideline for the teams and the NFs.

Under no hypotheses these guidelines intend to replace any regional or local restrictions or policies issued by governments and health authorities. It is a supplementary material to help our athletes and their entourage, coaches, and judges to restore training and competition routines.
