Special Olympics Tennessee has made the difficult decision to suspend all sports training, competitions, and other activities involving Special Olympics athletes through June 30, 2020, at which time the situation will be reevaluated. This includes our 2020 State Summer Games, and all local competitions and training,
This decision was carefully made after Special Olympics International consulted with the U.S. Centers for Disease Controls and Prevention and after reviewing the latest guidance from the World Health Organization. The CDC, the World Health Organization, and other health authorities are urging social distancing and other precautionary measures. As such, Special Olympics is committed to remaining vigilant and taking all necessary proactive steps to protect athletes, staff, coaches, volunteers, and communities.
