2020 USATF Masters Indoor Championships in Baton Rouge canceled due to COVID-19 virus concerns
INDIANAPOLIS — The 2020 USATF Masters Indoor Championships set to be held March 13-15, 2020 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana have been canceled based on the recommendation of the local organizing committee.
“Concerns over the COVID-19 virus and added risk to those over 60 years of age led to the decision to cancel the USATF Masters Indoor Championships out of an abundance of caution,” said USATF CEO Max Siegel. “We support the decision of the LOC and will continue to monitor the situation related to all other USATF events.”
In a letter to its membership last week, USATF reinforced that it continues to follow guidance issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the CDC. Please take a moment to become familiar with the WHO’s suggested safety precautions: Advice for public.
