Following the recommendation of public health professionals advising the NCAA, all Quincy University home athletic competitions will be closed to the general public until further notice, effective March 12, 2020. The NCAA recommendation addressed health concerns related to the COVID-19 virus pandemic.

Consistent with the recommendations supplied by the NCAA, only registered QU students, employees, approved university volunteers, and immediate family members of student participants (with permission from the university) will be permitted to attend home athletic competitions.

The university’s Communicable Disease Task Force and the President’s Cabinet will continue to monitor the latest information from health care professionals for managing the COVID-19 pandemic. The university will continue to review the status of other campus events scheduled in the coming days and weeks.

“While we know this news is disappointing, the health and well-being of our community are our top priority,” said Brian McGee, Ph.D., QU president. “We will continue to follow the advice of public health professionals, including advice received from the CDC and the Adams County Health Department, as we work to keep our students, faculty, staff, and community safe.”
