The SEC released the following statement on health precautions at the men's basketball tournament in Nashville this week due to coronavirus.

The SEC continues to monitor developments associated with the coronavirus (COVID-19) and has not modified the schedule of events related to our men's basketball tournament in Nashville. At this time our focus and expectation is to play the tournament as scheduled. Local authorities have confirmed this approach is consistent with current public health recommendations. We remain alert to any circumstances that could warrant adjustments for the health and well-being of our student-athletes, fans and other participants. We are in continued communication with public health officials and remind everyone to be attentive to everyday preventive actions identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov).

At this time, the SEC plans to implement the following health precautions at Bridgestone Arena, most of which were also applied during the SEC Women's Basketball Tournament at Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville last week. Similar preventive measures will be taken at the SEC Gymnastics Championship March 21 in Duluth, Georgia:

-Additional hand sanitizers will be present at arena entrances and throughout concourse and in meeting rooms;

-Use of hospital grade disinfectant to sanitize locker rooms before teams arrive and upon departure;

-Sanitization of game balls with hospital grade disinfectant after each practice and game;

-Sanitization of team benches plus band and cheerleader seating areas following each game;

-Hand sanitizers, disinfectant wipes and Lysol spray in team locker rooms;

-Hand sanitizers at scorer's table, in officials' locker rooms and operations offices;

-Signage throughout concourse to provide CDC preventive action recommendations

As long as we don’t lose the lives of football or baseball fans then the conference will go on without a blip

Now all that needs to happen is for all players to be disqualified from play after testing positive for illegal substances after inhaling all these "Lysol spray and hospital grade disinfectants & wipes.

22 deaths in USA from Corona virus. 18,000 deaths in USA from flu so far this flu season. Yet, the media is blowing this out of proportion. Ridiculous.

Yes, what vjp said... The grand council of the liberal media have convened and decided this is the issue they will push. Let's ignore the fact that they are competitors and gain zero advantage (name one?) to pushing the agenda. Coronavirus (this strain at least) is new. Therefore its reportable. This isn't "liberal media". It's all media. Snowflakes like VJP just need a conspiracy to latch onto.
