What restrictions may be in place due to the Corona pandemic will depend on where you live.
The committee of the Coventry Section VOC in the UK have discussed whether we should continue our normal Friday evening meetings at Berkswell village Reading Rooms, near Coventry. The rooms are used by other groups during the day and early evening, e.g daytime nursery, early evening children's dance class before we arrive at 8.00 pm. Alan, our secretary has sent out the message below to our section mailing list.

"Hi All, on the news, in the papers and at work we are made aware of the procedures to reduce or eliminate the possibility of becoming infected with Covid 19. I had not really considered our section meetings as being at risk but on discussing the issue we realise that primarily we have no control over other users of the Reading Rooms or what control measures are in place to address this. As a section we have a mutual responsibility for each others safety and so it is therefore recommended that although we will open up tomorrow you are more than welcome to have the option to remain at home in order to avoid contact with others. As soon as we receive any further instruction, I will let you know.

Regarding Loz's talk on Himalayas by Motorcycle, it has been decided to postpone for the time being until such time that we can ensure that attendance will be back to normal.

All the best, Alan U."

good morning,
sorry vincent to see the virus spoiling your holidays here in wagrain. yesterday evening our government decided to close all skiing resorts in whole austria, all hotels have to close latest on monday. had a sort of hotspot in ischgl in tyrol with a explosive growing figure of people infected - so that´s the reaction.
i´ll carry on with our exhaust system and we´ll keep in touch via phone and mail.

a warning to all: we may get to the point to have to cancel this year´s austrian rally. we´ll have to watch how the situation is carrying on and decide whatever fact are showing up.

I should be on the plane to Salzburg right now on my way to Maria Alm, but cancelled due to closure of the whole of Salzburgerland. Cases in both Maria Alm and nearby Saalbach-Hinterglem.
I'll just have to go for a ride instead!

Good luck everyone, we're probably all in the high risk group!

Cheers Bill

@Vincent Brake

I only changed the name of your thread, as I needed a 'public' thread where members could post info re the Coronavirus thing, and your existing thread fitted the bill perfectly.

I really didn't want to start another thread for what was essentially the same thing.

I know.

So why are you a skool master than.
One asks, i think thats normal.
I’m sure something’s lost in the translation!

Having said that, your English is far better than my Dutch.

Waiting to hear if the local So Cal event at Willow Springs Raceway, organized by another organization, but invited us as the featured marque, will be cancelled or not. The Hon VOC Chairman Mr Wood was planning to attend as well.

I think that Stuart Wood has sufficient zest for life that he won't put himself into a danger zone.
I should have been halfway around on the Tasmanian Tour and then onto NZ but by the way things are closing down I'm thankful that I cancelled and stayed at home, the pleasure of laying in "The Lee of Bum Island" is forever great.
