STATE GAMES ANNOUNCES CONTINGENCY PLAN
As of March 26, 2020
While plans to hold the State Games of Mississippi Opening Ceremony and most sporting events in June are still going forward, the State Games has created a contingency plan.
The State Games of Mississippi is monitoring the ongoing concerns regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19 and is committed to the health and well-being of our staff, board, volunteers and athletes and will be taking the necessary steps to help prevent the spread of the virus and keep everyone safe during any State Games events.
“If it becomes necessary for the Opening Ceremony and or the summer Games to be postponed or cancelled, we plan to have a ‘Big Celebration’ ceremony with at least two of our largest sports tournaments at a later date to highlight our athletes and sponsors,” said Executive Director Carolyn Smith. “We have all of our promotional items (t-shirts, posters and programs) printed with our Sponsors logos and these items will indeed be used in some way.”
Note: Office hours remain as noted below.
