2020 NZ Pipe Band Championships - Coronavirus

The Association is conscious of current health concerns regarding coronavirus (Covid-19). We are monitoring and intend to follow advice provided by the New Zealand Government and Ministry of Health officials.

All bands and individuals attending this year’s New Zealand Pipe Band Championships in Invercargill on 13 and 14 March are asked to familiarise themselves with and follow the advice provided by the Ministry of Health on its website https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/covid-19-novel-coronavirus/covid-19-novel-coronavirus-health-advice-general-public.

As advised by the Ministry of Health, if you may have been exposed to the virus please self-isolate and do not travel to Invercargill.

We are working with the Contest Committee to ensure we are doing all we can to minimise any potential risks to those attending the Contest and we ask all those attending to follow the personal care guidelines provided by the Ministry.

Thank you.
