Palermo tennis chief pleads for Halep quarantine exemption

Simona Halep’s bid to play the Palermo WTA event, which will mark the season’s resumption after a five-month suspension could be dashed by demands that all Romanians enter quarantine on arrival in Italy.

Organisers of the clay-court event, starting on August 3, are pleading with government officials to lift the self-isolation requirement for Wimbledon champion Halep.

The Minister of Health had announced that he had signed an order on Friday imposing a 14-day quarantine on entry into Italy for all those who had been in Romania and Bulgaria during the previous two weeks.
