The Green Spring Valley Hounds, Inc. has made the difficult decision to cancel its Point to Point scheduled for March 29 at Shawan Downs.
In making this decision, we relied heavily upon our medical providers and their expert medical opinions on the subject of the COVID 19 and the relative ease of person to person transmission, even outside. We weighed and discussed the risks and benefits, and made this decision based on public health and safety concerns for the invited public, health care providers, owners, trainers, and riders. Additionally, the need for medical providers—doctors, EMTs. ambulance personnel—to be available on short notice to address this pandemic prevented the Committee from providing the high level of medical coverage we have always prided ourselves on providing for this event.
