Dear OCR Family,

The health, safety and well-being of the OCR community in the United States is our highest priority. USAOCR stays in regular contact with World OCR and USA Pentathlon Multisport, a member of the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee, concerning coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on national and international sports. 

We are closely monitoring the situation and following the guidance issued by local authorities, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding events.

Some OCR events are being faced with cancellations as they follow the mandates and recommendations of local and state authorities. Race directors and organizers should communicate frequently with athletes regarding the status of their events.

USAOCR will provide regular updates to the OCR community. Please use the resources from the CDC, the U.S. Department of State, the World Health Organization and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to reduce your health risk.
