    COVID-19 announcement from the New Zealand Chess Federation
    In view of the COVID-19 virus situation, and in line with New Zealand Government advice on preventing transmission, the New Zealand Chess Federation Council passes the following resolution:

    1. All NZCF Regional Interschools events for 2020 are cancelled until further notice

    2. NZCF does not sanction or support the staging of any tournaments in New Zealand until further notice. Any such tournaments that take place will not be rated or recognised by the Federation, and no such events scheduled prior to 30th June shall be advertised on the NZCF Calendar.

    3. NZCF strongly advises all Chess Clubs, whether affiliated to NZCF or not, to suspend activities.

    It is with great regret that NZCF Council takes such a step. As chess is a game where the two players sit in close proximity of each other for lengthy periods of time, NZCF Council feels it appropriate to err on the side of caution in these unprecedented times.

    NZCF Council will review the position at the end of June 2020.
