Aradh and Jind Kaur are ready to play OTB.

Do I want to return to OTB tournaments? Of course!
Do I think it is safe to do so? Absolutely not. It will be many months before I think it will be safe enough for this chess player to compete in anything but online events.

I would love to see OTB tournaments but I am not yet ready for it. July seems too early. Want to wait more and prefer online tournaments instead.

I greatly miss OTB tournaments! But I am not ready for OTB now, and it will probably be many months before it is safe to play OTB. - Allen
