Corona Virus Review # 2

The Estonian government has imposed a number of restrictions over the past 1.5 weeks (cultural and sporting events, schools, some restrictions on movement). The borders of Estonia are not closed, there is a health check at the borders, and there is a guarantee period for those entering the country.

Over the past 1.5 weeks, the number of people infected with Corona virus in Estonia has increased, while the daily increase in the number of people infected with the virus has slowed down. The number of hospitalized people in Estonia is small, 17 people, 4 of whom have been healed and 4 are in critical condition, we have no fatalities.

Analyzing news from China and Italy shows a slowdown in the spread of the virus. We cannot guarantee that the WFAC2020 will take place or vice versa that it will not. The organizers will continue the preparations for the Tournament. We believe the situation in Europe has returned to normal in the summer and we do not need to announce the tournament will be canceled.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Tournament Participants,

Global news channels daily reflect the state of the Corona virus in various countries. There is relatively little information about the Corona virus in international news channels concerning Estonia.

In this regard, we consider it necessary to share some explanations about the situation in Estonia.

Today, March 13, the Estonian government declared a state of emergency in the country, which will last until May 1st. The emergency situation involves various activities aimed at stopping the spread of the virus, mainly to prevent the spread of the virus across the state border into Estonia. There are currently 40 infected people in Estonia whose contacts and people they have been in contact with are known and isolated. People’s awareness of how to prevent the spread of the virus is quite high.

The organizing committee believes that the WFAC will take place on time. When new circumstances of the Corona virus occur in Estonia, we will publish them immediately on the Tournament website.

At the same time, we announce that we have begun the activities and materials production needed to run the Tournament. In connection with the above, from March 15th all changes related to bow styles, names of competitors, etc. will be subject to a fee of € 20. This fee is not related to the refund of the entry fee!

The fee for making these changes will be paid on the spot at the venue, in cash upon registration.

Over 450 registered participants

The number of registered participants is reaching the maximum. Everybody, who has registered but has not paid the entrance fee will be removed from the list by October 15. The archers who have been removed from the list can register again and the entrance fee has to be paid in 3 days.

The participants who have booked accommodation at the competition village but have not paid for it by October 15 will lose their bookings and the rooms will be available for other archers to book.

Extended payment deadline

Due to WBHC 2019 we extended the first payment deadline to September 27th, please make sure your payment reaches us before that date.
