Covid 19 Update
March 10, 2020

NEBRA would like to pass along some updates related to the Covid-19 outbreak.

From USA Cycling:

Due to the wide ranging events and jurisdictions involved, USA Cycling is not preemptively requiring the postponement or cancellation of events. Rather it is up to each organization to work with their local government agencies and health providers to determine the risk associated with their event. USA Cycling policies and regulations never override civil laws, regulations and policies.

Organizers who feel that their event will be impacted should contact their USA Cycling Event Service Coordinator  or Event Service Regional Manager, all of whom are prepared to assist in the case that events need to be postponed or even cancelled.

Guidance for Event Organizers and Participants

Event organizers, participants, volunteers and staff are advised to follow the guidance set out by their local Health Departments as well as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Many of these common sense guidelines are good practice at all times – and also prevent common illnesses such as influenza.

Follow basic hygiene procedures as outlined by the CDC on their website.
Event Organizers should review the specific event suggestions made by the CDC here.

Organizers should also consult with their event medical team to ensure the following:

There is a plan with event medical in case anyone appears with symptoms at the event
That all responders have appropriate personal protective equipment
All parties are familiar with the various decision makers and have all contact information required
The medical team conducts an event briefing with all stakeholders


NEBRA will pass along more information as it becomes available.

Thank You,

JD Bilodeau
