The Women’s World Cup, scheduled for December 11 and 12 in St. Moritz, may be canceled. This time it had nothing to do with the weather preferences and the lack of snow; Instead the new regulations adopted by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPE).
According to recent orders, travelers from Canada must be subjected to ten days of isolation upon arrival in Switzerland.
Athletes are expected to come to Crisons from Lake Louise, where three speed trials (two Descent and one Super-G) are scheduled for Friday through Sunday, December 5th.
Organizers of the St. Moritz tournament have taken action today with the aim of getting an exception. The answer given by the competent Grabondon Condonal physician in this matter is not yet known; However, the Federal Office of Public Health has advised zones to be vigilant about granting approvals that may not complete the isolation. But as athletes and World Cup entourage move into a “bubble”, special permission may still be obtained. However, UFSP explains, the material still needs to be explored in more detail.
Canada is also one of the countries where the evolution of the epidemic does not present a particularly dangerous situation, with a daily number of 2,500 cases of the corona virus per 38 million people. However, the confirmed existence of the new Omicron variant has added the country to the Red List of the Central Office of Public Health.
The Swiss ski women’s coach, from Lake Louise Beat Tschuor, said the damage would be huge if the St. Moritz races were canceled, despite insurance.
