Corona Virus - Harley And Snow 2020 CANCELLED

BACKGROUND ON THE HARLEY & SNOW CANCELATION DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS

What's going on in South Tyrol? The situation there appears to be particularly exceptional; the Federal Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany issued a travel warning for South Tyrol today.

The Robert Koch Institute reports South Tyrol as a risk area for corona infections (as of June 6, 2020 2:45 p.m.).

BACKGROUND TO THE REPORT

The Baden-Württemberg Health Minister Manfred Lucha was obviously the deciding factor for reporting; he personally contacted the German Health Minister Jens Spahn and advocated for it. Around 40% of the people infected so far in Baden-Württemberg had previously vacationed in the South Tyrol region.

THE ANSWER FROM SOUTH TYROL

The government from South Tyrol is currently criticizing the German travel warning due to the Corona virus. The head of government of South Tyrol, Arno Kompatscher, reported in the Südtirol News that so far only two people have tested positive for the Corona virus and around 200 people are in quarantine at home. If we now take a look at NRW, we have to ask ourselves when Mr. Laschet will contact Mr. Spahn to have NRW declared as a risk area. Apparently no concerns about the conditions in North Rhine-Westphalia have been reported to our Health Minister, Mr. Spahn, from Baden-Württemberg. There are over 300 cases known in North Rhine-Westphalia (as of June 6, 2020). The Bundesliga has not yet been affected by a cancellation.

THE EU SHOWS NO UNITY ON CORONA VIRUS

Now we can actually wait to see when the South Tyroleans issue their warning for Germany, because there are probably more infected people here than there. Basically everyone can now warn about everyone, it actually shows very well that our authorities in particular are once again completely overwhelmed. In that case, the EU in particular would have to take the helm, but not much comes from there. When it comes to emissions regulations and harassing motorcyclists, things work better.

Hard blow for the Harley and Snow organizer and the guests and participants.

Nobody can expect compensation so far, most hotels want the full price for cancellations, depending on where you booked, it can be complicated. I can only recommend everyone to book on the Harley site under the events via Booking com and make sure to reserve accommodation where free cancellation is possible, it can always happen.

Those responsible don't want to burn their fingers

The problem in Bolzano is that no one in charge of the authorities wants to burn their fingers, the requirements were always extended in advance and on Thursday evening the message came that the event had to be canceled. Civil defense has now banned the event from taking place. With such strong warnings from Germany, one can perhaps even understand the authorities in South Tyrol, but I am not sure whether it is really in the interest of the government of South Tyrol to send such a signal to the world. It is clear that the virus is extremely contagious, but from that perspective you can get it anywhere.

A year of preparation for the cat

Harley & Snow is predominantly an open air event, it is very well known and the participants come from all over Europe. But everyone has some personal responsibility, no one has to take part. If you compare the fact that the motorcycle fair or Bundesliga games are taking place here and the decisive hysteria comes from Germany, you have to be surprised that the civil protection authorities in South Tyrol, make such a decision at a comparatively small event.

What can we do?

T-shirt shortly . You will find out when and where you can order it later here or on the Harley & Snow page. That would have been a great party this year, we can provide a little support so that we can at least look forward to a Harley and Snow 2021 .

They deserve the support, this event is being worked on with so much passion, it would be a tragedy to let it go under.
