Re: Coronavirus Update 

The AAU takes the safety and well-being of its members, teams, volunteers and employees seriously.  As with the rest of the world, the AAU is monitoring the on-going developments related to the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, with great interest.  We are consulting with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and encourage you to continue to follow CDC updates as they become available.  

For those of you who are planning events, the CDC has provided interim guidance for organizers and staff responsible for planning sporting events.  This guidance is available here:  Interim Guidance: Get your Mass Gatherings or Large Community Events Ready for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Please note the CDC has advised that they will update this interim guidance as needed and as additional information becomes available.

Yours in sport,

Dr. Roger J. Goudy
