For some time now I've been following some tweets about the World Figure Skating Championships, which are to be held in Stockholm next month.

In the last few days several people involved in the event have contacted me and asked to share this petition.

 https://www.change.org/p/international-skating-union-support-figure-skaters-by-demanding-effective-covid-protocols-from-isu-for-the-2021-world 

The petition is asking for reasonable measures to protect competitors and staff, or to cancel the event. Given the rapid increases in cases in Stockholm, this would seem prudent.

When I compare the measures Melbourne recently put in place to ensure a safe and healthy Australian Open Tennis Championships recently - with virtually no spread of the virus there - I have serious concerns for WFSC participants and ask @ISU_Figure to reconsider their precautions

Read through the petition and if you think it is worthy, sign it and pass it on.
