Östersund 2020 statement on Coronavirus

The Östersund 2020 Local Organising Committee and World Para Snow Sports are receiving regular updates and advice from health authorities on the status of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The Östersund 2020 LOC can confirm that the Para Biathlon World Championships and the World Para Nordic Skiing World Cup scheduled from 12 to 22 March will go ahead as planned.

There is no travel ban to Sweden currently in place and, at present, the Swedish Public Health Agency assesses the risk of spreading infection in the country as low.

The LOC will continue to monitor the situation with the support of World Para Snow Sports as the health and well-being of the Para Nordic skiing family is our number one priority.

We remain at your disposal for any further information concerning this topic.

Kind regards

Östersund 2020 Local Organising Committee
