DENVER (KKTV) - UPDATE (3/12): Effective Friday, the Colorado High School Activities Association has suspended all spring sports and activities until April 6.
CHSSA says the situation will continue to be monitored.
"The decision to continue competition on Thursday is up to local schools and school districts," CHSAA said in a statement obtained by our news partners at The Gazette. "The situation will be monitored and evaluated with key decision-makers from around the state to determine when, or if, to resume the spring season."
PREVIOUS (3/11): Following the trend of so many other organizations and athletic clubs across the country, the Colorado High School Athletics Association (CHSAA) announced the state basketball tournament would be limited to essential personnel only. The announcement comes with concern over the spread of coronavirus COVID-19 in Colorado.
Most fans won't be allowed to watch the games in person, but they will be able to follow along on the NFHS Network or CHSAANow.com. CHSAA added later Wednesday evening that each player will be allowed to have up to four guests attend games.
Spirit teams and bands will not be allowed to attend the games either.
Essential personnel means only those who have been submitted on the official CHSAA gate list by schools will be able to enter the venue.
