Due to the ongoing development of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, in the interests of the health and safety of our Ambassadors and those receiving an Ambassador experience, CITB has made the following decision:
We have decided to postpone all Ambassador events including Ambassador training until the end of April 2020, at which time we will review the situation and communicate directly with both the hosts and Ambassadors of any affected event and inform them of the policy going forward. As the situation is changing quickly we have also decided that we will not be taking any future bookings for all Ambassador services until further notice. We will communicate directly with our Ambassador network to update them of any changes to the situation. Any other stakeholders should refer to this page for update or contact the Ambassador operations team for further support (firstname.lastname@example.org).
