By USA Boxing | March 17, 2020, 4:18 p.m. (ET)
USA Boxing national office staff has been monitoring and receiving updates from the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC), who is working the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Based on the recommendation of the USOPC and the El Paso County Colorado Health Department and to minimize potential exposure to boxers, staff, their families and the public, USA Boxing is encouraging office staff to work remotely through March 31, 2020.
Also, based on the recent U.S. Government guidelines released, USA Boxing strongly recommends all boxing clubs and gyms close through March 31, 2020. We will continue to monitor and evaluate this need based on information received from government agencies and medical authorities.
For those registered clubs in cities or towns that have their local governments requiring the closing of health clubs and gyms, please follow those guidelines and requirements until those are lifted.
Staff members have the ability and are expected to perform the same duties that they normally would as if in the office. Members needing to speak with USA Boxing staff, please email or call the USA Boxing Membership Services line, firstname.lastname@example.org or 719-866-2323. If calling, please leave a voicemail, and a staff member will return your call and try to assist you to the best of our abilities from home.
As a reminder, all USA Boxing sanctioned events are suspended until March 31 at this time.
USA Boxing’s main objective is the safety of our 50,000 registered members and their families.
We hope all our members are practicing social distancing and following the U.S. Governments guidelines to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.
