Any update on World/European youth/cadet?

Does anyone know if the main FIDE and European tournaments for juniors will be held, postponed or cancelled?

There's some information on the ECU Calendar for 2020. It looks like the European Youth Championship scheduled for November in Turkey is postponed to 2021. Likewise the European Schools Championship. https://www.europechess.org/calendar/ecu-calendar-2020/
On the plus side it will save chess parents a small fortune :)
...possibly the World Cadets 18-31 October in Batumi, Georgia is running, but who knows? The World Youth isn't running and the World Schools didn't run.

The European Yourh Chess Championship 2020, scheduled for the 12th-22nd November in Antalya, Turkey has been postponed until next year.
The European Youth Rapid & Blitz Championship 2020, scheduled for the 26th-30th December in Novi Sad, Serbia has been postponed until next year.
For some reason, on the FIDE website Calendar, they are both still going ahead as planned.
I have found a few OTB events that are apparently going ahead for which I'll start a new topic for.
