The ECF and coronavirus guidance

The ECF has been considering the operation of evening league chess during the continuing coronavirus pandemic.
It is for individual leagues to decide on their own policy and the ECF cannot make decisions for those organisations. Our suggestion is that play is suspended for a period. A sensible period to allow for the progress of the virus to be monitored and reviewed in line with developments in Government policy might be for the next three weeks, with the policy being reconsidered at the end of that period.
We would also refer you again to our earlier guidance – see Coronavirus guidance
