The women's world curling championship in Prince George will go ahead as planned starting Saturday despite the ongoing global spread of the new coronavirus.

Provincial Health Officer Doctor Bonnie Henry says the province and the Northern Health authority have been working with the event's organizers to limit the risk of transmission.

Teams from countries grappling with outbreaks of COVID-19, including Japan, South Korea, China and Italy, will participate in the annual tournament at the 6,000-seat C-N Centre.

Health Minister Adrian Dix says fans should stay home if they're feeling sick, adding that the event will be televised.
