CHSAA statement on Coronavirus and state events

CHSAA commissioner Rhonda Blanford-Green has sent the following information to schools about the Coronavirus and state events:

I am in contact with multiple state and local agencies in regards to any changes that may occur with CHSAA culminating championships. The state and local agencies as well as our facility administrators have me on their "high alert" communications. If there are closures, logistics will be communicated to the membership and posted to CHSAANow immediately.

My suggestion is that these discussions and contingency plans happen at the local level should a school terminate contact and the state event still contested. Our plan is to conduct the championship events unless directed by state agencies and/or facility administration of cancellations.

The safety and well-being of our participants, staffs, volunteers and fans will be in the forefront of all decisions.
