Dear Miracle League Families,
Due to recent developments tied to the global spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), including cases in New Orleans and the heightened risks for older people, people who have serious chronic medical conditions and people who have weakened immune systems, Children’s Hospital, the Greater New Orleans Miracle League and the Miracle League Northshore is suspending all sports activities involving our athletes through March 31, 2020, at which time the situation will be reevaluated.
This decision was made carefully based on information received from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the latest guidance from the World Health Organization. While postponing/cancelling events is disappointing for athletes – as well as the volunteers, family, friends and our staff and board who look forward to cheering for them – we know that our love of sport doesn’t compare to the importance of protecting the health of the athletes, which will remain our priority.
Thank you for your patience as we navigate this constantly changing environment and strive to make the best decisions for the safety and well-being of our athletes and all constituents across the state.
We will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
