The Nevada Wolf Pack will be limiting fan access to spring sporting events in reaction to the coronavirus, the school announced Wednesday.
“In alignment with the NCAA’s decision on its upcoming championship events, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and the University of Nevada, Reno, will conduct its upcoming spring season athletic competitions with only game essential staff in attendance,” the joint statement between Nevada and UNLV said.
“The health and safety of student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans is the top priority. The institutions will continue to evaluate and assess the impact of COVID-19 in consultation with local health officials, the Mountain West Conference and campus colleagues and continue to follow federal, state and NSHE guidelines and best practices.”
Certain athletic events and competitions, including the Silver and Blue Spring Game and Grit Run, soccer/volleyball camps and games, and cheer clinics scheduled through the end of April have been canceled. Practices on the University campus will also be closed to the public.
On the Nevada campus, scheduled baseball, softball games as well tennis matches, only essential staff, family members of student-athletes and coaches and accredited media will be allowed in attendance. Games will still be broadcast with scheduled radio and Mountain West Network coverage.
Nevada’s ticket office account representatives will be in contact with ticketholders to discuss refund options.
