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.
