In these uncertain times, I wanted to take a moment to share with you what we are doing here at the PLL. As the situation around the coronavirus continues to evolve, we are doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our players, coaches and staff, and will be taking necessary steps in accordance with the WHO and CDC’s best practices.
We take pride in maintaining the highest standards of operating, and in response to the coronavirus, we have taken additional measures developed in consultation with global and local public health authorities for our players, coaches, and staff:
- We are initiating a work from home policy, effective tomorrow, March 13th, through Friday, March 20th. As an events services and media company, we are well equipped to exercise such a policy, limit exposure of infection, and remain productive
- We have encouraged our players to avoid public gatherings in regions affected by government-issued travel restrictions
- Regarding our PLL Academy events forthcoming, we will be in touch with individual registrants in regions affected by government-issued travel restrictions
We are aware of the NCAA’s decision to host March Madness games without fan attendance, as well as the NBA’s decision to suspend their season due to a player contracting the coronavirus. In the coming days and weeks, we are also working closely to understand the NHL, MLB, MLS, and NLL’s response related to public and private sector restrictions for their existing seasons.
During difficult times like these, we believe in the power of community and support – both part of the fabric of sport. As a society and individuals, it is our responsibility to curb expansion of the virus. The Premier Lacrosse League will continue to consult with experts and evaluate ways we can continue to support and provide safety to our players, coaches and staff as we approach our 2020 season.
CEO, Premier Lacrosse League
