The Fin­nish regio­nal sta­te admi­ni­stra­ti­ve agency has upda­ted their gui­dance on COVID-19 pan­de­mic. Based on the upda­ted sta­te­ment, the Govern­ment of Fin­land recom­men­ded reduc­tion of non-essen­tial acti­vi­ties: Clo­se con­tact should be avoi­ded in hob­bies and other lei­su­re activities.

His­to­rical Fencing is a con­tact sport and our sal­le is limi­ted in size. Our mem­bers work in all walks of life, so expo­su­re with risk groups is somet­hing we have to take seriously.

The­re­fo­re, the stee­ring com­mit­tee has deci­ded to con­ti­nue the sus­pen­sion of all trai­ning acti­vi­ties until March 31st, 2021, during which time we will moni­tor how the Regio­nal sta­te admi­ni­stra­ti­ve agency upda­tes their policies.

Furt­her announce­ments will be made by the end of the qua­ran­ti­ne period, latest 31st of March 2021.

Chair of Board,
