There is a lot of worry, uncertainty and doubt about this latest virus known as COVID-19. The SWICA board has been in discussion, and at this point in time, we are encouraging everyone to follow good personal hygiene practices and take the necessary precautions in your line of work and travel.
The current recommendations for mitigation of the virus include community actions such as school closures, postponement of large-scale congregation events, etc. Because the cycling population tends to be generally healthy and due to the limited number of participants in local cycling events, we are not currently, canceling any planned events in this area. We will continue to work with local, state and national guidance parameters that may be issued as needed going forward. If recommendations from local, state or national authorities changes, we will review this decision and notify if any changes to planned races are made.
Please continue to follow the CDC recommendations in order to help ensure your health and the health of others. Further information may be found on their website.
Thank you and be safe,
Board of Directors –
SouthWest Idaho Cycling Association
