COVID-19 Update from Boxing BC
British Columbia, April 1, 2020

Dear Members,

Boxing BC continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and boxing events that it has impacted.

Recently the IOC announced that the 2020 Olympics have been rescheduled to take place in Tokyo from July 23 to August 8, 2021. We have no word as yet on whether the 2020 Canadian Nationals.

Premier John Hogan stated that the next 14 days are critically important. He asked all British Columbians to re-commit to doing their part, noting that there are early signs that our actions are making a difference.

In a recent update, Dr Bonnie Henry also stated that we are at a critical juncture over the next two weeks. She stated that there was zero chance of the social distancing measures in place being lifted during the month of April and that the situation will be monitored for May and June.

With this in mind, Boxing BC is extending the suspension of all Boxing BC events until the 30th of May, 2020. As always, as the situation evolves and changes we will determine what changes to these measures will be required.

Please refer to our webpage www.boxing.bc.ca for updates and links to relevant and current information.

All clubs will be able to reschedule their sanctions at later dates. Boxing BC will not accept any new sanction requests until further notice. Refunds will not be given at this time, but you may reschedule your show for a later date once the suspension is lifted.

Finally, a shout out to our Member Clubs who are providing training and fitness Online to not only athletes and their members, but the general public. Thank you for these great opportunities to stay healthy and fit during these troubled times. See our Facebook page for shared schedules and our Webpage under Clubs for links to clubs with online activities.

Stay safe and wishing you good health.
