Subject: CPP Home Athletic Events Closed To Spectators

Cal Poly Pomona Athletics continues to work closely with campus leadership to monitor and respond to the evolving COVID-19 situation. Based on the decisions announced today by CSU Chancellor's Office and out of an abundance of caution, attendance at all Cal Poly Pomona Athletics home events will be limited to essential personnel only until further notice. Essential personnel are defined as student-athletes, coaches, team trainers and medical personnel, game officials, operational and administrative staff, and credentialed media members.

All of the CPP baseball home games will continue to have live stats and a live video stream, free of charge, but no spectators (fans, family members, etc.) will be allowed in or around Scolinos Field.

Cal Poly Pomona Athletics will continue to follow California State University and Cal Poly Pomona travel guidelines when it comes to team and personnel travel. At this point in time, teams will continue to practice and compete; however, any student-athlete who does not feel comfortable traveling or participating in team activities will be excused from doing so.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation as well as recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, and we will work together with campus officials to make any additional changes deemed in the best interest of our student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans.
