Update on COVID-19

Hi everyone,

As you are possibly aware, Sydney University sent out recommendations in the last few hours indicating that the University highly recommends all gatherings and events be cancelled or postponed due to the threat of the novel Corona Virus (COVID-19). The World Health Organisation has declared COVID-19 is a global pandemic, and as a result heightened preventative methods are stressed.

Therefore, as a results the SUMBA exec are figuring out what events and rehearsals we may have to cancel this semester. In our discussions, we are taking into account the recommendations of the Uni and the Australian government, and are factoring in actions of other organisations (e.g. the Sydney Royal Easter Show unfortunately deciding to cancel the show this year).

For those who haven't read my other really long post in the 'SUMBA Plays at the Rugby' event, we are no longer playing at the rugby tomorrow (Sat 14th), and will make sure everyone gets their instruments back who needs them...

We will keep you all updated about what decisions are being made, especially about rehearsal next Thursday (right now we are just waiting on more information from the Uni and USU). We're really sorry that new members are not getting the ultimate SUMBA experience, and hope you won't hate us all too much wooo  :(

If you have any questions or comments etc. etc. DO NOT HESITATE IN CONTACTING US to discuss things!
