The corona virus is putting a spanner in the works: domestic football clubs cancel their trips to Italy. Companies also play it safe.
Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen - You had been looking forward to a few nice days on Lake Garda, but nothing will come of it. The TuS Geretsried footballers canceled their training camp in Cola di Lazise at the southern end of Lake Garda, which they wanted to set off on Thursday morning, because of the corona virus. "We left it up to the players to decide," says coach Martin Grelics. A third does not want to take the risk, explains the TuS coach. The region was not directly affected, but because it made no sense to split the team, the decision was made to stay at home. "It's a shame, but no reproach to the players. You have to accept that. "
Some stay at home, others want to go to the training camp
Just as with the Geretsried state league team, the corona virus is currently thwarting the preparation plans of some local clubs, which are increasingly training for a few days in the north of Italy in winter. At DJK Waldram, the department management has relieved the players of their remorse. "We decided not to drive," explains Dominik Wamsler. It was not so much the risk of infection that played a role, but the fear of suddenly “getting stuck in a so-called quarantine zone”, he explains the cancellation of the training camp in Kurtinig in South Tyrol. "If Italy closes the borders for two weeks, you won't be able to get out," said the Waldram soccer boss.
The BCF Wolfratshausen women's team, who has been a regular guest in Kurtinig for a few years, wants to start their journey to South Tyrol on Friday night. “We always go to the same hotel and know the people. Of course, we inquired about the situation on site - and the situation is normal, ”explains Ludwig Taubenberger. Therefore, he has no concerns, says the technical director of the BCF women.
Wait and hope is the motto at Sportfreunde Egling-Straßlach and SV Münsing. "As long as there is no official ban", the training camp in Castelnoova will be held on, says Eglings department head Franz Beierbeck. Münsing's coach Christos Georgiadis, who wants to move into Malcesine from March 5 to 8, has a similar view. Unless his boss is serious about the advice: "Anyone traveling there should add two more weeks of vacation to be sure that they haven't caught anything."
Business trips to Italy, China, South Korea and Japan are strictly prohibited
It is not that drastic, but the situation is also discussed in companies. While business trips to Italy, China, South Korea and Japan are currently strictly prohibited, there is only a request for private trips to let the company know and to "deal with it as openly as possible", said the Weber Screwdriver Public Relations Department ,
Ulrike Ballnath, spokeswoman for Eagle Burgmann, says: “Business trips between Germany and Italy are not permitted at the moment. If someone wants to travel there privately, they have to contact the HR department before going on vacation. ”
