Santa Clara County officials have decided to ban gatherings of more than 1,000 people starting March 11th to limit the spread of COVID-19. Which means events at SAP Center, for the rest of the month of March, have a chance of being rescheduled or canceled.

Yesterday the San Jose Sharks have released a official statement. 

Luckily the next Sharks home game isn’t until 3/19, so hopefully they can find a solution at that time.

The Sharks also want to remind you.

For all SAP Center guests, we ask the following:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and clean your hands.
