In light of the recent developments regarding the outbreak of the COVID-19 respiratory virus in the U.S., public events of all sorts and scopes have become affected. The DC Diplomat’s activities are no exception from that.
As of today, Thursday, March 12, 2020, the Northeast Team Handball League has suspended all competition events of the 2019-2020 season until further notice. In addition, Montgomery County Public Schools are expected to announce to close starting Monday, March 16, 2020.
The DC Diplomats are aware of the increased risks associated with contact sports like Handball, and the possibility to contract illnesses like COVID-19. We, therefore, cancel all practice activities effective immediately until further notice, but at least until March 27, 2019.
As updates become available we will post them here.
For more information, please find resources from the USOPC, CDC and the U.S. Department of State to help reduce your personal risk:
