With the NBA suspending their season due to the Corona Virus/Covid-19, it was only a matter of time that other pro sports leagues followed suit and released statements regarding their plan regarding the global pandemic.
Sure, the Vikings aren’t set to play anytime soon, but considering the fact that a lot of what the team does in the off-season requires human interaction, and the fact that global treasure Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have the virus, it’s clearly time to be better safe than sorry.
This statement comes after the following was reported:
Here is the statement in it’s entirety:
Eagan, Minn. (March 12, 2020)–We continue to closely monitor coronavirus developments and maintain contact with the NFL, health officials and other local professional teams. Consistent with guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we have implemented precautionary procedures to protect staff and reduce the risk of acquisition and transmission inside TCO Performance Center. These actions include emphasizing proper hand washing, enhancing environmental disinfection and preparing for remote work protocols, if necessary. We are also suspending travel for our coaches and scouts until further notice and reviewing restrictions on large public gatherings in the near future. These are uncertain times, and our priority is to protect the health and safety of our players, coaches, staff and fans and do our part to minimize the spread of this virus.
Stay safe out there everyone!
