Ton's of Universities have announced this week plans to move classes remote.
Either effective immediately or in the near future - some say don't return after spring break until further notice.

Ohio State, Perdue, UCLA, Princeton, San Diego State, Duke, Barnard, University of Seattle, University of Washington, Cal Berkeley, Hofstra, Villanova, Florida International, USC, Harvard, Stanford, Amherst, Syracuse are some of the major schools and the list goes on.

Ncaa just announced tournaments like March madness will be played in empty arenas

Big because this might set precedence in running any major sport event in the future.

I think its cute they think there's enough people that go to paintball events to take this type of drastic action.

It's not the amount of people it's the travel in Europe between several counties with various different travel restrictions.

NHL said they are looking into it but not ready to make an announcement.

NXL gets points for being proactive. They announced before the President's travel announcement or any of these leagues.

It stinks but I hope it can all be re-scheduled so the season can play out.
I think this off season and the first event have been very good for paintball and want to keep building on the momentum.

San Antonio and San Marcos are starting to close schools and colleges/moving classes to online. I'd expect Texas to enforce something soon. So we'll know shortly.

MLS and USL have now both suspended the Soccer seasons.
As have Europa League and Champions League.

Texas could very likely get the chop. Its close enough and there is no sign of this slowing down.

It’s just a new virus we haven’t had a chance to build up immunities to.
So hide in your attic, don’t get sick and build up immunities, but hide.

All major sports groups have suspended or cancelled. Illinois school sports are suspended until further notice. A lot of people are saying "the warming temperatures will help kill this off like the flu." Problem is this isnt a flu. Its more related to SARS. Don't expect this to be over anytime soon, although I did see that the Canadians announced they had a vaccine going into testing within hours of the NHL suspending the season. Motivation is key.

Yeah but most new viruses don't kill 10%+ of older folks or people with weakened immune systems (transplant recipients, people going through chemo, HIV+ individuals, etc). This one's bad enough that it will overwhelm the hospital systems if it spreads too quickly. Even though most people at an NXL event are not at much of a risk from it personally, the vast majority of the attendees do have someone in their lives that are at risk.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
