“As case numbers increase in many states across the country, it is critical that neighboring states coordinate a regional approach to limit further community spread of the virus,” the governors said, adding, “As public health data continues to evolve, the states will reassess the need for continued restrictions on interstate sports activities.”
Competition will be suspended effective Saturday “through at minimum” Dec. 31.
The order will not impact college, professional, or U.S. National Team activities.
