The Coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve and is in different stages in different parts of the world. Within a country there might be areas in a peak phase with high risk of transmission close to others in which the situation may be even post-pandemic or normal. Therefore, the response to the pandemic is evolving differently across the world, in terms of governmental guidelines, the severity of the impact of COVID-19 on different national populations.

Therefore, given the present status, the FISA Sports Medicine Commission advice from 27 February 2020 (for the spreading period) and 25 March 2020 (for the Peak period) has been updated to reflect the evolving global health situation.

Please also find the new updated advices to return to full rowing training and avoidance of injury, along with the return to regattas' guidelines. 

These guidelines cannot replace the priority provisions of the state governments and the locally responsible health authorities, but serve as a rowing-specific technical contribution.
