The PBA Board of Governors is set to convene on June 3 to draw the guidelines and protocols for a possible return of the teams to training and the eventual return of the tournament.
The authorities have already decided to ease the community quarantine measures putting Metro Manila under General Community Quarantine starting May 31. With these, the PBA is hoping that teams' training can be allowed even in small groups.
It will be the first time that the PBA will convene personally with PBA chair Ricky Vargas presiding the proceedings although the Governors will have the liberty of attending the meeting via video conferencing if they want to.
"First time na magkikita-kita na. Pero yung gustong through online pa rin ang attendance, pwede naman. Those who are showing up in the office will observe social distancing. We're meeting in our video-review room which is about 2.5 bigger than our regular conference, so we can strictly observe physical distancing," said PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial in a report in the PBA website.
The PBA chief is also expected to suggest measures and health guidelines for the approval of the board in the event that the league gets the green light to resume its Philippine Cup.
FIBA meanwhile has also released its own guidelines for the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas and fellow federations for a possible resumption of basketball events around the world.
The PBA also started measures on its own backyard as the employees under the Office of the Commissioner all underwent COVID-19 testing. Marcial was hopeful that no one among his staff will test negative so that they can finally work in full force once GCQ is applied in Metro Manila.
