Update regarding positive COVID-19 cases at the World Men’s Curling Championship
We can confirm now that the remainder of today’s (10 April) schedule of playoff games at the World Men’s Curling Championship have been postponed pending results of testing of athletes and officials.
Four positive COVID-19 test results have been returned and the athletes, officials and other event staff are currently isolating in their hotel rooms pending the result of the testing.
The option to resume the championship on Sunday 11 April is being evaluated, with the possibility of three sessions of play used to complete the remaining play-off games. However, this will only be considered if athletes and officials can be kept safe under the current protocols.
