ENC Athletics Update Regarding COVID-19 (March 18, 2020)

In keeping with Eastern Nazarene College upper administration decisions in regards to the COVID-19 outbreak, Eastern Nazarene spring athletic contests and practices have been cancelled for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year.

The NCAA along with the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC), the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (tennis), and the North Atlantic Conference (track & field) have all cancelled spring championships.

We encourage all ENC community members to practice standard precautions regarding hand hygiene, good cough and sneeze etiquette, and to take precautions against COVID-19. 

While these are not easy decisions to make, we feel that they are being made in the best interest of our student-athletes and our entire ENC community. We are aware of the impact of these decisions. However, our top priority is the health and welfare of the entire ENC community, and to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19. We are taking these actions now, as disruptive as they might be, to lessen the risk of facing greater challenges and consequences in the future. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate these challenging circumstances.
