After confirmation that all scheduled PCR testing on Saturday (1 May) for athletes and competition officials has returned negative results, the LGT World Women’s Curling Championship 2021 will resume play with session eight of the round robin at 14:30 Mountain Daylight Time (MDT).
Due to the delay in the test results process, the sessions today will both begin 30 minutes later than scheduled. The afternoon session will begin at 14:30 and session nine in the evening will begin at 19:30.
As previously announced, there will be no broadcast coverage taking place for the sessions today, tomorrow (Monday 3 May) and Tuesday (4 May) morning.
Competition officials are now investigating the schedule to incorporate this morning’s postponed session at a later date. Further information on this rescheduled session will be made available as soon as possible.

The robust health and safety protocols put in place by the World Curling Federation and Curling Canada, under the guidance of the federal, provincial and local public health officials, have ensured the integrity of the competition bubble. Those protocols will continue to be followed to ensure the championship can resume safely for the athletes, officials and staff.
