USA Volleyball Response on Coronavirus
Message from CEO Jamie Davis
The safety of our members, spectators and staff is our paramount concern.

As we head into the heart of our tournament season with many people on the move, I want to share what we know right now and our plans going forward. In analyzing all of the data, USA Volleyball has determined that it would be premature to cancel our tournaments at this time as the risk is still very low in the United States. That being said, we are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and may alter our decision should the need arise.

USA Volleyball has this page dedicated to this situation where we will be posting the latest information on the outbreak, USAV event updates, recommended health precautionary measures and any event specific protocols that will be adjusted as a result of the virus. Given the fluidity of this matter, decisions regarding each event will be determined independently as factors affecting one may not affect another and we are working with each of the local authorities and event venues to increase safety measures.

Finally, we have established a mailbox at where you can send any inquiries related to this issue.

- Jamie Davis, CEO, USA Volleyball

Proactive Precautions to Take
Most importantly, if you have a respiratory illness or fever, please stay home.
Get a flu vaccine.
Avoid contact with sick people (if you’re sick, limit contact with others).
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover your nose and mouth with something disposable (like a tissue) when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
Clean frequently touched items (cell phones, airplane seating area -tray table, screens, windows, arm rests, air vents, etc.).
Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at 60%–95% alcohol. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.
It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
Bring extra hand sanitizer with you to all events.
