Yesterday the PGA TOUR made the announcement that due to the ongoing health crisis related to COVID-19, all PGA TOUR events through May 10 have been canceled. As of today, the 2020 Sanderson Farms Championship is still scheduled for September 28 – October 4.
First and foremost, the health and safety of everyone throughout our community will continue to be our No. 1 priority as we navigate the ongoing health crisis related to the Coronavirus pandemic. Our thoughts and prayers are with all our officials, particularly our healthcare providers, during this time.
This is obviously a very fluid situation that requires constant review, communication and transparency, and we – working closely with the PGA TOUR – are dedicated to all three aspects. As we prepare for our event this fall, we will continue to monitor information provided by the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control along with local and state government health agencies. On a regular basis, we will provide status updates including any additional protocols put in place to ensure the health and safety of all in attendance as we get closer to our tournament.
We encourage our fans to stay informed of the developments of the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 through official sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website and the Mississippi State Department of Health. We will provide further updates as new information becomes available.
