STAY IN THE KNOW: SPORTS/EVENTS AFFECTED BY COVID-19 OUTBREAK PREVENTION

While the world continues to handle the sudden outbreaks of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Guam’s Department of Public Health has issued a press release addressing what the island is doing to stay on top of the threat of the virus. This has led to a number of prominent sporting event postponements.

Late Sunday evening, the IIAAG issues a press release regarding the cancellation and postponement of sports related activities through March 21st, until further notice. The IIAAG board will hold a special meeting Tuesday to discuss plans moving forward.

Early Monday morning, The ISA did the same, suspending all sports related events and activities – which include practices, tryouts and schedule games. GDOE had canceled their scheduled professional development day late Sunday before the Government Shutdown halted all school/sporting related activities.

Both leagues will spend the week addressing the situation and will release more information when available.

**this list will be updated when more information gets released**

– FIBA Asia Qualifiers: Guam Basketball vs. Hong Kong (postponed)– 2020 United Guam Marathon

Statement from UGM – As Guam’s largest international sports event, we have been closely monitoring the situation of COVID-19 (coronavirus) within the Asia Pacific region and how this issue affects both our international and local participants. After consulting with key stakeholders in the public and private sectors, we have made the decision to postpone the 2020 United Airlines Guam Marathon (UGM). The 2020 UGM originally scheduled for Sunday, April 5,2020, has been rescheduled for Sunday, September 13, 2020. We will continue to work closely with our stakeholders, United Airlines, Guam Visitors Bureau, and the Government of Guam to ensure that the 2020 event remains a successful event for everyone.
