COVID-19 Update – March 12, 2020

Although there are no known cases of COVID-19 in the O’Dowd community at this time, we are continuing to plan and take actions to ensure our community’s health and well-being.

Today, the CIF canceled all basketball games for both Men’s and Women’s Varsity teams going forward. All league athletic events have been cancelled through this Saturday, March 14. We are making decisions about other athletic events as we collaborate with our athletic partners, to communicate that information as it becomes available.

We have also made the difficult decision to cancel several events through Spring Break, following recommendations from federal, state, and local health authorities. The specific event cancellations are posted on our website’s COVID-19 page and will be updated as needed. They are listed below:
