To the Crowns and Kingdom Seneschals of the Known World

>From the Board of Directors, Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc.

Good Greetings,

The Board continues to monitor the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) spread
across the world. Given the suggestions by various health organizations,
including the CDC and Public Health England the Board of Directors of the
SCA, Inc. recommends that all Kingdoms cancel, suspend or postpone all
events, practices, meetings, and other SCA sponsored in-person activities
through April 30, 2020.

The SCA is a Kingdom-based organization. The various Kingdoms have state,
provincial and national governments either recommending or mandating
responses to COVID-19. The Board asks that the Kingdom leadership follow
the recommendations of the governments of the modern areas making up that

The Board recognizes that many Kingdoms have their Coronations and/or Crown
tournaments in April and that canceling these events may cause a hardship.
The Kingdom Seneschals should discuss this with the Society Seneschal for
recommendations and suggestions. In addition, with every Kingdom being
affected, the other Kingdom Seneschals may have advice and recommendations
for you. The SCA may need to waive part of Corpora for these suggestions
and recommendations to be put into place, and the Society Seneschal stands
ready to issue waivers as necessary and appropriate, recognizing that some
plans may need refining before a waiver could be issued. This is an
unprecedented situation. The Board continues to monitor the responses and
will assist Kingdoms as it can. At this time, the Board’s closure
recommendations are just that, recommendations. It may be necessary in the
future for the appropriate Corporate and Society officers to require
postponing all SCA functions, but we are not there, yet.

In service,
Lady Jehanne de Montauban
Northkeep Seneschal
