As the COVID-19 virus passes through, concerns are swirling around the safety of sporting events. While more notably affected countries like Italy are closing down soccer games, US sports leagues have maintained a neutral position thus far.

The XFL is business as per usual, but the revelation that one of Century Link Field’s part time employees has come down with the trending virus. Per Q13 Fox, officials from King County Public health have said.

“Public Health has worked with the employee and the operator of the stadium, First and Goal, to evaluate potential exposures at the Feb. 22 Seattle Dragons game, and public health officials have determined that the risk of infection to attendees was low. Public Health is following up with a few co-workers with close contacts of the employee at the February 22nd game to provide guidance on appropriate precautions.”

They are also advising persons with compromised immune systems, senior citizens and people who are experiencing any sicknesses to stay home, but the risk of spreading the virus at the games remains low.

As of now, the XFL is operating as usual with these new health suggestions in place, but they are keeping a very close eye on the story as it develops.

Fans attending games should practice good sanitation, such as washing hands, not sharing food and drinks and staying home if they are feeling ill, but Seattle officials do not expect the XFL games to be an issue for the virus.
