Mister Speaker, I thank you for the opportunity to give an update on Sports and Recreation in the COVID-19 Era. By now, we are all aware of the health risks caused by this worldwide pandemic. All over the world, professional leagues and sporting events we all enjoy, the NBA, the NFL, and even the Olympics have been shutdown. Recreational facilities, including public pools and basketball courts have been closed due to the threat of transmission of this virus.
