Figure skating at its best
March 22–28 2021
Health Regulations For Event Participants
The health and safety of all participants of the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2021 remains the number one priority for the International Skating Union (ISU) and the Organizing Committee (OC). Mindful of the concern for health and safety related to COVID-19 but also the need to give Skaters the best possible opportunities to compete internationally, the ISU will give its utmost support to ISU Members in order to stage all international competitions that can safely be held during the season 2020/21. This approach also applies to the ISU World Figure Skating Championships scheduled to be held in Stockholm (SWE) from March 22-28, 2021.
The Health Regulations for Event Participants of the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2021 were prepared in cooperation with the ISU Medical Commission, the OC Medical Team and the competent Swedish health authorities. Strict and comprehensive protocols and measures of distancing, hand washing, masks, daily health checks and temperatures will be implemented along with a rigorous testing regime. Everyone within the Competition Bubble will undergo multiple PCR tests including:
- As per the requirements of the Swedish government, everyone traveling to Sweden will have to provide a negative PCR Test result that is not older than 48 before arrival in Sweden
- A PCR Test upon arrival at the Official Hotel will be undertaken. Everyone has to stay inside their hotel room until the PCR Test result is known. Once the PCR test result is negative, the individual will be informed and only then can they pick up the accreditation card
- An additional PCR test will be done no later than 4 days after the initial PCR test upon arrival/entry into the CB
- Finally the OC can organize a PCR Test for all those requiring one before leaving the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2021 Competition Bubble
