U.S. Ski & Snowboard Working to Bring Athletes Back to U.S.
Due to the recently enacted European travel restrictions, and ongoing concerns in the United States regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), U.S. Ski & Snowboard is working to bring athletes and staff currently in Europe back to the United States over the course of the next several days.
Worldwide, there remain a handful of events that are currently scheduled, however, U.S. Ski & Snowboard athletes and staff who have not yet traveled, will remain in the U.S.
All athletes and staff traveling back to the U.S. will be screened upon arrival and abide by all CDC guidelines. U.S. Ski & Snowboard continues to educate athletes and staff on the importance of reporting symptoms. Standard medical protocols will be followed for any athlete or staff member who reports symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
The health and safety of athletes and staff is the primary concern of U.S. Ski & Snowboard and we are monitoring the current outbreak COVID-19 closely. We remain in close contact with the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as well as our local health authorities here in Utah for guidance and instruction.
