CORONAVIRUS - ENGLISH BRIDGE UNION STATEMENT

Updated information about Coronavirus

In the light of increasing concerns about the increasing spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) the Board of the EBU has decided to postpone its own events, and revise its guideline/advice for counties, clubs and members.

Postponed Events

The Portland Pairs; The Really Easy Spring Break; The Mixed Olympiad Trials; The Northern Easter Festival; The Easter Festival.

Further postponements may be announced in time. Where possible, we will reschedule events.

Knockout matches will have deadlines extended on request.

Advice to Counties/Clubs and Members

Counties. County events, because of their nature, we strongly recommend cancellation.

Clubs we advise to follow government/PHE instructions. If you are unable to comply for whatever reason (inability to observe social distancing, inadequate sanitation then we strongly advise closure pro tem). Clubs with cramped premises and no scope for even the most rudimentary social distancing must also beware of the dangers they face. Ironically, larger clubs must also be willing to make tough decisions because of the sheer number of people they have through the door.

Members. Follow government/PHE advice, do not attend if showing any symptoms.

We all know two things. Cards and bidding boxes are major likely sources of infection, and our demographic includes many people at high risk. It is in view of this, that the Board has made this decision about its own events and made the advice to counties, clubs and members more robust.

Ian Payn
EBU Chairman

 

There is information on the Public Heath England website and the World Health Organisation has issued guidance about it, primarily recommending: Further advice is also available from the BBC
