STATEMENT FROM LOTHIANS GA EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS
The Association has listened to and taken advice in respect of the ongoing worldwide situation regarding the Coronavirus and considering that we have been advised that where possible any large gatherings, visits for social activity, restriction on the use of public transport, restaurants, sports centres etc should be avoided.
Despite that schools are to remain open for the foreseeable future, and that young people are less vulnerable to the virus, it has been decided that the forthcoming Junior Champion of Champions due to be played at Baberton GC on Sunday, 29 March 2020 has been postponed. It is hoped that a future date may be organised, but this will be dependent on the ongoing and long-term situation.
Other Association events and activities are currently under discussion and decisions on these will be made within the next 24 hours and will be based on the ongoing restrictions imposed which are changing on an almost daily basis.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause; however, it would be irresponsible for us to ignore WHO, Government, Scottish Government and Chief Medical Officer advice and that decisions have been taken to safeguard the health interests of all players, officials and spectators.
