Along with the governing bodies of other sports, British Orienteering has issued the following statement:
Suspension of all orienteering activities
It is with great sadness that we are now in a position where all orienteering activities in the UK have to be suspended with immediate effect.
We are aware that the Coronavirus outbreak is a very fluid and rapidly changing situation. We will, therefore, continue to follow advice from Public Health England, World Health Organisation and both local and national governments on this matter and will keep the orienteering family updated as appropriate.
We know how great the sport is at supporting each other and we ask that you continue to pull together (albeit virtually) during this difficult time. We will do our best to get you back in the forests as soon as it is safe to do so.
Finally, we ask that you continue to follow the government’s guidance on how to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Please stay safe and support each other during this hard time.
