NJPW Issues Statement On Coronavirus Precautions, Says Live Events Will Continue, Offer Safey Guidelines

Earlier today, we reported that the Joshi-promotion STARDOM was canceling all live events up through March due to concerns of the Coronavirus disease that has been sweeping through Japan and much of the rest of the world.

Now, New Japan Pro Wrestling has issued a press release advising fans who are not feeling well to stay home while offering safety guidelines for those who wish to continue attending events. Although no dates have officially been canceled by NJPW, fan meet-and-greets will no longer be happening until further notice. Check out the details below.

The New Coronavirus (COVID-2019) has been a persistent worldwide news topic for some weeks, and understandably has many concerned. New Japan Pro-Wrestling holds the health, safety and comfort of fans, wrestlers and staff at live events as a top priority, and as such, after careful consideration, we have arrived at a policy for live events in the immediate future.

All currently scheduled live events will proceed as planned. In light of this decision, we invite attendees to take the following precautions at events:

–Be mindful of your physical condition before an event. If you have a fever, cough or cold symptoms or feel otherwise unwell, please stay home.

–Additional disinfectant alcohol sprays will be available for attendees to use at every venue. We invite every attendee to disinfect their hands on entering each venue.

–NJPW encourages attendees to wear surgical masks at live events where at all possible. Staff members may also be wearing masks. We also encourage fans to thoroughly wash their hands and gargle.

–Please leave the venue if you become unwell during an event. Be aware that staff may advise attendees to leave if they seem unwell.

–Meet and greets/autograph signings at events will be canceled until further notice. We appreciate your understanding.

–Refunds will be made available for tickets purchased to March events. While events will all proceed as planned, we appreciate fans’ concern, and would like to ask ticket holders not to attend if they feel at all unwell.

With the best interest of public safety at heart, additions, including attendee health checks, may be made to the above at a later date. Keep checking njpw1972.com for more details.

We appreciate your continued support of New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
