USA ARCHERY RESPONSE ON CORONAVIRUS
Message from CEO Rod Menzer
First and foremost, the safety of USA Archery’s athletes and coaches is our highest priority. As our event season heats up, we want to address any concerns and share what we know right now as you make plans to attend one of the many great events planned for this summer. USA Archery is working with information from World Archery and the US Olympic & Paralympic Committee, the CDC, World Health Organization and the U.S. Travel Association. In analyzing the information, USA Archery has no plans to cancel any of our events at this time as the risk is still very low in the United States. That said, we will continue to closely monitor the situation and will provide notice should any major changes or related travel advisories arise that should impact our events.
