ATVMX Coronavirus Position Statement
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the ATVPG urges the sick and the vulnerable (the elderly and those with underlying health conditions or suppressed immune systems) to avoid large events and public gatherings, including ATVMX events. ATVMX Racing will comply with restrictions imposed by federal, state and local authorities, including the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and the World Health Organization (“WHO”) regarding this matter in the areas where ATVMX events are held.
At this time, the Texas National set for March 28/29 at Underground MX Park in Kemp, TX is under no such large gathering restriction and will proceed as scheduled, unless authorities direct otherwise.
In the meantime, ATVMX urges its racing community to use common sense: 1) wash your hands often; 2) avoid shaking hands or coming into close personal contact with others; 3) if you are sick, stay home; 4) if you are really sick, go to the hospital; and 5) don’t panic. Until further notice, autograph sessions with riders are suspended. Additional hand-washing stations will be onsite at all events.
The health, safety and welfare of our riders, teams and fans remains paramount, and we will keep our race community apprised of all further developments.
