To All USAPA Members:
Everyone including the pickleball community can do their part to help respond to this public health threat:
  • On March 16, the White House announced a program called “15 Days to Slow the Spread,” (click on the link to the full PDF) which is a nationwide effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 through the implementation of social distancing at all levels of society. Key points from the program:
    • Listen to and follow the directions of your state and local authorities
    • If you are an older person or person with a serious underlying health condition, stay home and away from people
    • Do your part to slow the spread of the coronavirus
    • Even if you are young or otherwise healthy, you are at risk and your activities can increase the risk for others
    • Avoid social gatherings
    • Avoid discretionary travel, shopping trips, and social visits
  • Older people and people with severe chronic conditions should take special precautions because they are at higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness.
For the latest updates and resources on the coronavirus, go to the CDC Situation Summary.

We encourage everyone to do their part to slow the spread of the coronavirus, follow the directions of your state and local authorities, avoid social gatherings, and if possible, stay home and away from people. Soon enough we will be back to playing pickleball regularly.
