11th June 2020
Based on the Suggestions provided by its Medical Committee which comprises top Doctors in the city, The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) formed the Guidelines for Resumption of its Office, consent and declaration forms, as well as norms for disinfection of its premises.
The CAB also formed a Monitoring Group which would be headed by CAB Vice President, Mr. Naresh Ojha. Other members of the Monitoring group are Pradip Dey, (Chairman, Medical Committee); Rupnath Roy Choudhury (Chairman, Membership Committee); Dhanish Seth (Chairman, Benevolent Fund); Sanjay Dutta (Apex Council Member); and; Santanu Mitra (Member, Medical Committee).
“Keeping in mind the safety of our staff, we have framed the guidelines for resumption of office. Next steps would be finalization of the rotational roster to prevent over crowding and re -layout of the Office Premises to ensure social distancing is observed. Thereafter, we would take a call when to formally open the office”, said CAB President, Avishek Dalmiya
“In the meantime, we have formed a monitoring group for COVID 19 Precautionary Measures to be headed by our Vice President, Mr. Naresh Ojha. The Terms of Reference of the Monitoring Group Include:

A) It would ensure communications are made with stakeholders explaining measures to be adopted.

B) It would monitor compliance of other steps to be taken to manage risk and submit action plan to the administration on regular basis.

C) Coordinate with the Panel of Doctors and help in framing different guidelines and Standard Operating Procedures”, Dalmiya added.

While the arrangements for safe return to office are being undertaken, no date for resumption has been finalized yet.
“We are trying to abide by the steps suggested by our team of Doctors. We do not want to take chances in these trying times. Health of stakeholders remains vital”, said CAB Honorary Secretary, Snehasish Ganguly.
CAB is also in the final stages of preparation of the Standard Operating Procedure for Resumption of Cricket Practice. In this regard, the CAB President had stated earlier that the Association is in the process of finalising Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for Resumption of Practice based on the inputs from the empanelled Doctors. Mr Dalmiya had also mentioned that the Indian Cricket Board would be sending their recommendations and guidelines, which would be incorporated in such SOP.
