News & events Coronavirus (Covid-19) Boccia England position as of 18th March 2020 In light of the rapidly changing situation involving Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the expectation that stricter measures could/will be introduced in the coming weeks, Boccia England has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the 2019/20 Competition season and to suspend boccia activity across the country at all levels of the game at this time. This means we have suspended competitions, courses, events, programmes and training sessions for the time being until further notice. We have also made arrangements for all our staff to be able to work from home and during this transition we ask for your patience in terms of responding to enquiries. We will continue to be fully operational with arrangements in place to deal with telephone enquires as well as post. It is important to stress that the health and safety of our members is our main priority and to avoid the spread of Coronavirus we will be continuing to follow the government’s advice, which is to move away from mass gatherings and for the public to avoid any unnecessary contact where possible over the coming weeks. We also strongly encourage those with underlying health conditions to continue to follow the guidance in terms of social isolation to minimise the risk of becoming ill. We will shortly be publishing a ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ document which should answer any queries you may have. However, please email [email protected] if you have any other queries relating to the Coronavirus and Boccia England. Given the positive impact, boccia has on many people’s lives and the importance of keeping active at this time, we will be considering different approaches to encourage people to be active through boccia using digital and virtual resources over the coming days and weeks. Please keep following the government and public health advice here https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public and we look forward to welcoming you to Boccia England competitions next season.
