Corona-virus: Events gecancelled

Recommended Posts

" There are no easy words to discuss what the world is facing right now. As the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) situation is evolving rapidly, we encourage geocachers to follow the most current guidance from public health authorities when choosing how to participate in activities such as geocaching. Your health and safety are the top priority.

We understand that for many people geocaching is an especially valuable activity during this difficult time, since it’s a way to get outdoors and be active while adhering to social distancing standards advocated by health authorities. We wanted to share what we are doing at HQ regarding COVID-19.

Here at Geocaching HQ, we’re fortunate to have the option of working from home. Community is at the heart of everything we do, so right now, we’re all busy working to ensure that we can keep doing our best to support geocachers like you.

Speaking of support, many of you have already written to HQ with questions about future events and plans. We are actively working with Mega- and Giga-Event organizers, who will be able to reschedule their events in cooperation with HQ.

For regular Events and CITOs, we advise hosts to consult their regional health authorities to understand the guidance regarding gatherings of people. Generally, Geocaching HQ leaves the decision to Event hosts on whether to continue hosting the Event and to attendees on whether they will participate. In some regions, community volunteer reviewers may suspend publishing new Events and/or may disable, retract, or archive already published Events, in accordance with guidance from health authorities.

We also want to allow flexibility for hosts who need to reschedule their published Community Celebration Events due to COVID-19 concerns, since this is a unique Event type. We have posted announcements on those Event pages to share the process for rescheduling.

Additionally, we plan to move our upcoming Memory Lane souvenir challenge from a start date of Monday, April 6 to Monday, May 4. We will continue to monitor the guidance for COVID-19, as well as your feedback as we get closer to May. Our goal is to have a promotion that is both fun and safe. As such, we will continue to make any adjustments as needed so that the promotion is as inclusive as possible.

For timely updates, please monitor our social media channels."

Zojuist van Mega event Geodoorn 2020 een melding ontvangen: voorlopig gaat het feest nog door.

               "
Coronavirus (COVID-19)

NL:
Wij volgen het laatste nieuws omtrent het coronavirus op de voet. Wij staan in nauw contact met alle betrokken partijen en laten ons gedetailleerd informeren. Op dit moment hebben wij geen reden om het Geodoorn 2020 Mega event uit te stellen.

Als er nu of op welk moment dan ook door het RIVM (Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu) anders wordt geadviseerd brengen we jullie via onze sociale media op de hoogte. We kunnen niet voorspellen of het coronavirus roet in het eten gaat gooien, maar wij gaan er op dit moment vanuit dat Geodoorn 2020 doorgaat. Wij werken achter de schermen enthousiast door om het een onvergetelijk Mega event te maken.

Het event is op 20 juni, dus nog even te gaan. Hopen dat het tegen die tijd veel beter met de wereld gaat.

Inderdaad. Het lijkt me nog wat te vroeg om het event nu al af te blazen.

Kabinet: Alle samenkomsten tot 1 juni zijn nu verboden.

En daarmee dus ook álle geocachingevents die tot dan op de kalender staan.
