12/03/2020 Update: Training still planned to go ahead but the Club is following Coronavirus developments closely. If training is cancelled; full refunds will be made.
We are much looking forward to seeing our younger members for the Junior Training next month. We are keeping a close eye on developments surrounding Coronavirus, but as it stands we still fully intend to run the training. The Swiss authorities are active in taking steps to minimise the spread of the illness and, although there are a handful of cases in Graubunden, including one in Davos (statement on their website – 12/03/2020), the area is not classified as a risk area and public services are running as normal.
That said, Cantonal authorities have imposed restrictions on all events over 50 people and while there is a possibility of having to alter the format of the welcome drinks and prize giving, we can see no reason why the training itself cannot go ahead as usual. Clearly, if the situation deteriorates and we have to cancel the Junior Training then we will give a full refund to everyone who has applied
At the moment the FCO has not advised against travel to Switzerland, but if you would like to know more then please see advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
