This coronavirus is really getting scary. With major events canceling and closing their doors all over the country. Even the NCAA has just announced they will not be allowing fans into the area for some of their major basketball tournament events.
Furthermore, teams like the Golden State Warriors…one of the most prominent NBA teams..just announced that they would also have no fans attending their next game with the Brooklyn Nets. The first time that has ever been done.
