Interim Guidance for Coronavirus Disease 2019 as of 3/15/2020

Large events and mass gatherings can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States via travelers who attend these events and introduce the virus to new communities. Examples of large events and mass gatherings include conferences, festivals, parades, concerts, sporting events, weddings, and other types of assemblies. These events can be planned not only by organizations and communities but also by individuals.

Therefore, CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.

Vasaloppet Winners complete Swedish Vasaloppet

Vasaloppet USA’s 2020 winner Caitlin Gregg and 2019 winner Felicia Gesior complete their first Vasaloppet Sweden 90km race Sunday March 1. Fast, icy conditions on Saturday gave way to a snow covered course Sunday morning as 4-5 inches of snow covered the tracks. Gesior finished in 6:05:47 and Gregg completed the 90km race in 6:13:06. Gregg ran the race without kickwax and double poled the entire distance—something she said was a long term dream. Gesior opted for some kick wax—a decision she said allowed her to pass large numbers of skiers toward the end of the race.

Brian Gregg (left below) also completed the race in a time of 5:20:55 and Kikkan Randall was also at the Swedish race and finished in 5:59:05.
