Coronavirus update for Special Olympics NC
On March 16, Special Olympics International (SOI) announced it wants all Special Olympics Programs to cancel all in-person events through May 31, 2020, at which point the situation will be reassessed for updated guidance. Special Olympics North Carolina will comply with SOI’s request.
Unfortunately, this news means that the 2020 SONC Summer Games scheduled for May 29-31, 2020 is cancelled. Rescheduling Summer Games to later in the year is not possible given the complexity of organizing the event and the fact that future coronavirus cancellations may be extended beyond May.
