Unexpected benefit: I'm having much more fun now.

Really.


Figure this might be an appropriate spot to ask this:

I coordinate a recreational sports league (adults, ultimate frisbee) and have been researching which preventative measures should be enforced and/or strongly recommended.

Last week I followed the protocols implemented by national-level organizations such as: eliminating high-five lines, reducing group huddles, barring the sharing of water bottles, providing hand sanitizer, cleaning and disinfecting discs and commonly-touched items, etc.

However I'm still concerned with the non-zero likelihood of someone being unknowingly exposed, appear to be asymptomatic, and nevertheless be contagious. I can't assume that everyone is equally informed about the symptoms, risk factors, indications that a self-quarantine is necessary, etc.

Has anyone come across statements put out by a community-based organization (local sports league, YMCA, Girl Guides, etc) which instructs its participants about self-assessing exposure and early symptoms, and determining if they should stay home?

Or if you have your own thoughts, please let me know!

not that anyone in here probably cares but the NCAA Wrestling Championship is also included in that cancellation.

I imagine that Tom Brands is probably the angriest man in the world right now, the only thing that could stop him from winning his first national championship in ten years was a literal pandemic.

WWII? Aside from leagues just going out of business, I can't think of anyone cancelling the season.

Even if they could, I donít think theyíd want to.

Too many teams in both leagues planned around expiring contracts and have made moves based on contract status for it to be a possibility. I donít think thereís any way enough NBA teams would agree to putting off the 2021 FA season for another year.

The tournaments.

regular season games are up to the teams involved and/or the conferences involved.

They cancelled everything. The entire winter and spring seasons.

https://fansided.com/2020/03/12/col...aa-coronavirus/

https://www.ncaa.org/about/resource...g-championships

Today, NCAA President Mark Emmert and the Board of Governors canceled the Division I menís and womenís 2020 basketball tournaments, as well as all remaining winter and spring NCAA championships. This decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat, our ability to ensure the events do not contribute to spread of the pandemic, and the impracticality of hosting such events at any time during this academic year given ongoing decisions by other entities.
