Sharks to play despite officials calling for cancellation


Despite Santa Clara County (California) health officials calling for sports teams and other large gatherings to cancel events due to the coronavirus, the San Jose Sharks will play Thursday night against the Minnesota Wild, the team said in a statement.

With confirmed coronavirus cases in the county increasing, Santa Clara County public health officials held a news conference Thursday afternoon, urging large-scale events to cancel.

The recommended measures are intended to help curtail exposure to the virus, known as COVID-19, to larger groups of people.

Sharks Sports and Entertainment issued a statement in which it said it was “aware of the recommendations” made by the county, but that Thursday night’s game against the Minnesota Wild “will go on as scheduled.”

The Sharks also said in the statement that they will “continue to actively monitor the situation” and “will be evaluating further upcoming events in the coming days.”
