Message from the HSDAA Board regarding the COVID 19 Pandemic
To All HSDAA Members:
The HSDAA Board is concerned about the potential impact of the Coronavirus on everyone, and we want to specifically address the impact on our HSDAA dog shows. Currently we have dog shows scheduled in conjunction with ICE on May 2-3, 2020 in Lakeland, Florida. We also have independent specialties scheduled on June 6-7, 2020 in Richmond, Virginia and for our National Specialty on October 14-17, 2020 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
As for the Lakeland, Florida show we think it is unlikely that it will go forward as scheduled although it is still scheduled on the ICE website. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued an executive order on March 20, 2020 closing all restaurant dining rooms statewide, among many other activities, until May 8 at the earliest. Accordingly, we believe it is highly unlikely that the Florida show will go forward as planned. We suggest not entering the Florida show with ICE at this time.
The Doc Baldwin Blue Ridge Specialty Show that was recently scheduled for June 6-7, 2020 in Richmond,Virginia is likely to be postponed to August or September of this year. We are currently looking for available dates in that time period as we think it is more likely to go forward in that time period than the current date.
We hope all our members are exercising caution and safety in this very difficult and trying time.
Hopefully, we will be able to enjoy our dog shows and get together soon.
The HSDAA Board of Directors
