Euroopa Sõudmise Konföderatsiooni juhatus teatas täna, et lõplik otsus U23 EM toimumise osas tehakse 15. juunil 2020.
Eelnevalt oli teada antud, et lõplik otsus tehakse täna, 30.mail 2020, kuid jätkuva koroonaohu tõttu Saksamaal otsustasid FISA ja Korralduskomitee lükata lõpliku otsuse tegemine edasi.
U23 EM-i planeeritud toimumise aeg oli ja on 5-6.september 2020 ning see on ainuke võistlus 2020.a kalendris mille toimumist pole ära jäetud või edasi lükatud.

Decision date for the staging of the European Rowing Under 23 Championships, Duisburg, Germany, 5-6 September 2020
Following the communication of 18 April regarding the postponement of the 2020 European Rowing Events, the European Rowing Board (ERB) and the 2020 ERU23CH Duisburg OC have been closely monitoring the evolving impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe. The ERB and the OC are doing their best to be able to provide competition opportunities for European rowers, safeguarding the health and reducing the risk levels for all participants by following guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the local government authorities on the staging of events during the post-pandemic COVID-19 period. Appropriate plans are being put in place to ensure that the event is staged with the lowest possible risk for contamination. It is apparent that with these additional preventative measures there will be some additional costs to the OC. The ERB and OC are considering a “safe event accreditation charge” of Euro 20 per participant to cover some of the additional costs.
While the ERB and Duisburg OC commit to put the recommended preventative measures in place during the event, it is important that all participants at the event take an individual responsibility. A signed consent form will be required from each participating Member Federation which confirms that the participants in that team will adhere to the event infection prevention guidelines, and that any costs related to an infection during the event (testing, quarantines, hospitalisation) would be the responsibility of the individual participant or the Member Federation. This form will be published to Member Federations in advance of the event.
In order for the measures put in place by the OC to be as effective as possible at the hotels, it is strongly recommended that Member Federations make accommodation bookings to stay in official OC hotels via the Organising Committee system.
While the details of the event preventative guidelines are being fine-tuned with the local government authorities, the ERB and OC have postponed the final decision on staging the event to 15 June 2020. Accommodation bookings can be made without any cancellation costs by 20 June 2020. OC will send the invoices after the final decision.
