“In light of Governor Jared Polis’ announcement Monday (March 16) afternoon where new restrictions were mandated to slow the advance of the COVID-19 virus narrowing the minimum standards for public gatherings, we are announcing that the Association will follow the guidelines that went into effect at 8 a.m. today and will remain in effect for 30 days,” CHSAA Commissioner Rhonda Blanford-Green said in the release. “This media and school advisory is to keep the membership apprised of the latest decisions from the CHSAA office.”

In addition to the moratorium extension, all CHSAA music events have been canceled, as has the CHSAA Hall of Fame ceremony on April 14, according to the release.

The CHSAA Legislative Council meeting, scheduled for April 15, has been postponed.
