Coronavirus (COVID-19) Impact on Programs & Events

as of March 16, 2020

Dear Chapters of Disabled Sports USA:
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread within our communities. As such, we anticipate that more programs and events will be impacted.
As we consider the upcoming calendar, our primary concern is the safety and welfare of our community. DSUSA will adhere to the guidelines put forth by national and local governing agencies, including the CDC, regarding gatherings and community spread. We strongly encourage chapters to, as well.
As of 3/15/2020 the CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.
Just today, the White House has advised people not to gather in groups of more than 10. Your local municipality or state may have further advice and restrictions. Chapters should be aware of the context in which they operate, and make appropriate decisions about cancelling or postponing programming and events.
Also, we recognize that there are a number of chapters where DSUSA grant funding may be impacted by programming cancellations and postponements. Please know that we are in communication with funding sources on how best to proceed. We expect to provide participating chapters with clearer information in the next few weeks.
Disabled Sports USA recognizes these are unusual times, and we appreciate your commitment to the well being of our community as we navigate this ever-changing situation together.
