Coronavirus

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (CNN) — The Olympic Training Center in Colorado is closed at least through April.

That has some athletes stressed.

For now, the 2020 games in Tokyo are still scheduled to take place this summer.

And, some participants said they won’t be prepared if the competition happens despite coronavirus.

The president of the International Olympic Committee said the games could be postponed.

But, organizers don’t want to cancel them completely.


Most patients with COVID-19 have a mild respiratory illness including fever, cough and shortness of breath. The Tennessee Department of Health strongly encourages Tennesseans to wash your hands often with soap and water and to not touch your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

The CDC recommends that organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 10 people or more throughout the United States.

High-risk individuals are defined as adults over 60 years old or people of any age with serious chronic medical conditions such as: Heart disease, diabetes, or lung disease.

The Tennessee Department of Health offers a COVID-19 Public Information Line at 877-857-2945, with information available daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Central Time.
