Two events - one online one possibly not

 There have been two announcements regarding important chess events in the last couple of days. The first is the 2020 FIDE Congress will be an online event, to be held from the 1st to the 6th of December.

The second is that the 2020 Candidates Tournament will recommence on the 1st of November in Yekaterinburg.  The announcement was initially made by the Mayor of Yekaterinburg, but has now been confirmed by FIDE as well. However, there is still some uncertainty about the Candidates, as it still depends on the players being able to resume the event, and that there is no further outbreaks of Covid-19 in the host city.
