Excerpt from Archery Canada Advisory on Covid-19

Mental Health Update
Leading mental health authorities and advocacy groups are calling for an increase in mental health resources to cope with the threat of an “echo pandemic”, the significant rise in mental health issues in those significantly affected by COVID-19. The Canadian Sport community is not immune to this echo pandemic, and to help flatten the mental health spike, a preventative and proactive approach must be taken. To help mitigate the ill-effects of stress, protect mental health and promote mental fitness, it is recommended that we practice psychological hygiene as part of the daily routine. The following are some activities to be considered.

Emotional Tolerance
We must remember that emotions are an integral part of the human experience; they are there to protect us, guide us and help us recognize what we need. We should accept that our emotions are real and valid responses to this abnormal event. By understanding our emotions and core needs, we are able to increase our emotional tolerance. Valuable steps in this process include:
• Naming the emotion we are experiencing (e.g., I feel anxious and overwhelmed) and recognizing it as normal and valid (e.g., just my emotions doing their job in these times of uncertainty)
• Accepting the emotion as a normal aspect of our experience (e.g., It’s understandable that I have heightened level of anxiety given the current situation)
• Identifying needs by exploring what the emotion is revealing or why it is important (e.g., I want to be safe and need to take necessary precautions)

Im a little late getting to this but just found out about it.

https://worldarchery.org/news/178292/world-archery-launches-stay-home-online-league-during-covid-19-outbreak
From Archery Canada Sport Medicine Advisory Committee

Presently we have over 8,600 confirmed cases with > 100 deaths or 3 per 1 million population in Canada which continues to rise. Canada’s death rate is at approximately 1% of confirmed cases.

Canada is still in the early phase of the rapidly rising epidemic curve, as is the USA where the peak is expected to be approximately mid April. Although the peak in Canada is likely to be less severe than US our peak may be delayed by a few weeks. This may be due to the early effect of our isolation efforts which we will not see for another week or two or the viral strain. This means that social isolation efforts will likely need to continue at least through sometime in May (this is all theoretical mathematical modeling at present). On a positive front there are some very early indications that the social distancing and other measures in Canada may be working.

Worldwide there appear to be 3 or 4 different strains of the COVID-19 virus with varying severity that have yet to be confirmed. Italy has an 11% mortality rate and similar to Spain, with a Strain that appears to have originated from Wuhan. In Germany the mortality rate is closer to 0.8% and this strain likely originated from Shanghai. Which strain has infected Canada is yet to be determined and may be different from cluster to cluster, but we still need to make every effort across Canada to restrict transmission no matter which strain we have in our region.

We are presently observing a low but steady trend of local transmission cases from China, Japan, Singapore as restrictions are relaxed. This second “wave” is a concern and will also determine how long we need to enforce self-isolation measures.

Updates from Archery Canada in PDF

https://archeryalberta.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/March-23rd-AC-update.pdf
Many Club and Provincial events that had been planned this spring have been cancelled. Looking forward toward the summer, Archery Canada will continue to take the advice of local and federal government bodies to make informed decisions. At this time, we have not made any decisions on the postponement or cancellation of events that have been planned for June or July. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update our community as soon as possible if anything changes ensuring we follow the appropriate public health guidelines when considering all potential outcomes.
We are in touch with the hosts for both the 2020 Canada Cup West and the 2020 Outdoor Canadian Championships, and a decision has been taken for the opening of registration for both events will be delayed until April 15th, though this may be adjusted as information becomes available. It is recommended that until further notice, potential registrants should wait before finalizing their travel arrangements for this summer.
We are aware that the current Indoor Mailmatch has been impacted by the evolving restrictions that have been recommended or imposed in some Provinces and cities in efforts to keep the infection curve flat. For many clubs, they have not been able to complete the minimum 6 shoots for score submission. For this reason, the Archery Canada events sub-committee have decided to consider the Mailmatch complete as of March 15th, and will use the average of the top 4 scores. Club Mailmatch coordinators will have until March 30 to submit all final scores on behalf of their club.
The Outdoor Mailmatch, which is set to begin across Canada on June 1, will at this time proceed, though clubs should follow guidelines for outdoor activities as these become available. Archery Canada will continue to provide updates on our website at www.archerycanada.ca/covid-19
