Cancellation Of 2020 Club Zoom ‘Kindred Spirit’ Series Track & Field Meeting
We regret to announce the cancellation of our much anticipated 2020 Club ZOOM “Kindred Spirit” Series Track & Field Meet, scheduled for August 15.
Our decision is in accordance with the direction of the Singapore Ministry of Health’s ‘Additional Precautionary Measures to Prevent Further Importation and Spread of COVID-19 Cases’1 published today, 13 March 2020. As directed under Item 15 of the MOH directive – ‘Advisory for events and gatherings’ – mass gatherings cannot exceed 250 persons.
Our meets, which are typically attended by thousands of athletes and spectators, would clearly be in contravention of this MOH advisory. As the Prime Minister has said, the COVID-19 pandemic will continue for a year or longer. “In such a crisis, everyone has a part to play.
I hope you will work with me and my colleagues to keep our families safe, keep Singapore secure, and move forward together.” Club ZOOM will do our part in this nation-wide effort to beat the COVID-19 virus. It is our ardent hope that the current COVID-19 pandemic will resolve as quickly as possible and that you will remain healthy through this trying period. We look forward to your future participation at our events once this global crisis is over.
