DC Mayor Declares State Of Emergency, Recommends Limit On Crowds

Washington D.C. is following the State of Washington in limiting the size of large gatherings. D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser declared a state of emergency Wednesday. Officials recommend crowds of 1,000 or more people should be postponed or canceled.

The DC Defenders take on the Dallas Renegades Sunday at 4 pm in Audi Field. Audi Field is blocks away from the heart of Washington D.C. That game, just like the Seattle Dragons vs. LA Wildcats, could be played in an empty stadium.

The D.C. Health Department is asking that “non-essential mass gatherings, including conferences and conventions,” be postponed or canceled through the end of March.

The DC Defenders final home game is Saturday, March 28th, at 2 pm ET against the Tampa Bay Vipers. Still no official word from the XFL or DC Defenders on Sunday’s game.

With the NBA announcing late Wednesday night, it was suspending its season until further notice due to Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert testing positive for COVID-19.

Plus, the NCAA limiting fans for the March Madness games. The XFL leadership needs to make some tough choices over the next several days. This is a fluid situation changing hourly.
