Covid - 19 Update
March 10 Update. 2020 Pacific International Judo Tournament, Richmond, BC
RE: Covid 19 and Health protocols at 2020 Pacific International Judo Tournament
We are in regular contact with our local government officials, Judo Canada and Judo BC.
The message from the City is that there is no reason for municipalities to engage their municipal emergency responses or networks. The virus is not circulating in the community and all is as we expected.
The Oval is putting up more hand sanitizer stations and promoting the Vancouver Coastal Health protocols for handwashing and prevention. We ask that all participants follow the protocols listed below. You can go to the Vancouver Coastal Health website for more information.
If there are any updates we will be sure to let you know, as soon as we are informed.
On behalf of the
2020 PIJT Organizing Committee
