Players and staff are also expected to measure their own temperature and check symptoms daily. In addition, temperature and symptom checks must be carried out every day at the entrance to the club’s facilities.

The League states that “[the] the principle of over-riding [of] asymptomatic testing of Players and Clubs [is that it] must be carried out in the context of excess testing capacity, so as not to eliminate health care workers, vulnerable populations and symptomatic individuals from the required diagnostic tests (‘Publicly Required Tests’). “

Players returning to their respective hometowns on public transportation – including commercial air travel – must quarantine themselves for 14 days before joining the small group Phase 2 training. Those who are considered returning from “high risk” environments may be required to quarantine alone for 14 days although not traveling by public transportation.

All personnel are required to wear a mask when entering and leaving the arena.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
