Coronavirus update

Implications of the Coronavirus on the IPA

The entire world has been affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic,  and many countries and governments across the world are enforcing strict measures and regulations in order to moderate the spread of the virus. This has led to lockdowns, national borders being closed, bans on travelling, gatherings being prohibited, and much more, across the world.

Unfortunately, due to the above, some of our upcoming events in the IPA have been either postponed or cancelled, and a few of our IPA houses have been temporarily closed. This page will be updated on a regular basis with a list of cancelled events and closed houses.
