Everything is cancelled? What we know now

Slowly the Czech Republic is being shut-down. The Covid-19 virus has caused unprecedented disruption in people’s everyday lives. Imagine working in a hospital?

Slowly the Czech Republic is being shut-down. The Covid-19 virus has caused unprecedented disruption in people’s everyday lives. Imagine working in a hospital?

As of today, the 11th of March, 2020, government decisions have resulted in the closure of all schools and universities in the country. NO gatherings over 100 people, private or public, are allowed to take place. The time frame remains open ended as nobody knows how long it will take for authorities in Europe to get a better handle on the virus. The containment opportunity is coming to an end and now begins the time of delay. Delaying the spread will allow the country to better prepare and also hope that a vaccine can be developed; especially for those deemed high risk.  

Prague.tv brings many events, concerts and venues to its followers so we thought we should update everyone on the current situation. We advertise a lot of things and at this time we do not know what will go on as planned, and what will need to be cancelled or delayed.

First of all, everyone is a bit dazed by how fast this has unraveled. It is safe to assume that most everything will not go on as planned in March. Some events have already been cancelled for April. Already two days ago some sports games in the Czech Republic went on without fans. Promoters and organizers do a lot of planning in bringing a show to town. There are the contracts, the demands, the marketing of tickets, the sales, the rules and regulations, the venues, the police, the firemen, security, food and beverage etc. etc. There is a lot to this trade, and it has all stopped dead in its tracks!

So please let’s be patient and understanding when seeking refunds, asking about rescheduling etc. The truth is nobody has any idea what to do at the moment. The costs of cancelling are huge, but it also grows everyday.  It is safe to say that nothing new is getting signed.

The most important thing in the present is to remain calm, be considerate, WASH YOUR HANDS, stay at home if you have any flu symptoms, and worry about the rest later. Although we will go through some unsure economic times in the short term, our governments will help us out and make everything honky dory again soon.
