Believe me I wish it was plain and simple but it's far from that. 

Expect the worst and you will never be disappointed!  One school of thought in situations like this.  I don't wish it to proliferate and cause suffering as I am in the highest risk group but it appears to be as you say "far from that".  In WA it has escalated from one nursing home to 10.  In NY one person affected 50 people.  Best to follow the instructions given as long as they seem prudent.

some groups had their schools pull the plug on their season, like Norwalk CT. in fact the MAC circuit killed their season. in one part of PA, a show host won't let schools from a certain county attend because one school there  (not any planning to attend) closed due to exposure.

The Norwalk board of ed just about everything, including the spring musical.

Doesn’t look good for WGI championships. 

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said Wednesday the state will issue an order banning mass gatherings, including sporting events.

"The reason we're doing the things we're doing is we have the potential of becoming Italy," DeWine said of the coronavirus precautions, according to The Washington Post's Adam Kilgore. Italy is among the countries hit hardest by the outbreak.

Such a ban will directly affect NCAA Tournament games in both Dayton and Cleveland, as well as home games for the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers and the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets.

DeWine declared a state of emergency in Ohio on Monday. So far, four cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, have been reported in the state.

"This seems difficult for people," DeWine, a Republican, said. "But we know what's coming. We know what's around the corner. ... Everything looks the same, but it's really not."

The NCAA Tournament's First Four is set to be tip off in Dayton on Tuesday. First- and second-round games in Cleveland are scheduled for March 20 and 22. Because of that, the Cavaliers aren't slated to play at home again until March 24.

The Blue Jackets, meanwhile, have three home dates scheduled over the next eight days. On Tuesday, the team went against DeWine's recommendation that events proceed without spectators.

They already banned spectators from the MAC Tournament in Cleveland.

Just got the word. WGI officially cancelled Championships for Guard, Percussion, and Winds.

_________

WGI World Championship Statement

At the direction of Dayton & Montgomery County Public Health, and in consultation with the Ohio Department of Health, and Governor DeWine, WGI Sport of the Arts is canceling the 2020 WGI World Championships for Color Guard, Percussion, and Winds.

The numbers involved in an event of this magnitude urge caution in light of recent national and international health concerns. Over nine days of competition, groups from 41 states and five countries would travel with over 16,000 participants.

While we are deeply saddened to cancel these prestigious events, our priority is, and always has been the health and well-being of all those involved with our organization.

Creating opportunities for young people is the foundation of WGI. The world championships are the culmination of a competitive season and this will mark the first time in 43 years this tradition of excellence will be interrupted by an unprecedented situation.

We are grateful for the support and guidance of Dayton & Montgomery County Public Health as well as Greene, Hamilton, and Campbell counties in arriving at a decision in the best interest of all parties.

Although it’s true the 2020 WGI World Championships will not take place as we hoped, WGI as an organization will continue our mission - to provide a venue for young people to achieve the extraordinary through performance and competition.

Over the coming weeks WGI will be working to untangle the complexities of this situation and we appreciate your patience and understanding.

Regarding Refunds:

Entry fees - WGI will offer all groups registered for the 2020 World Championships a credit to be used towards any 2021 event entry fee, or a full refund issued upon request. 

Backside ticket orders - Full refunds will be processed within the next 30 days and/or those invoices will be voided if currently unpaid.

WGI was just officially cancelled.

I'm assuming all regional competition that are WGI sponsored that are up coming will also be scrapped. It's very sad and a troubling time what is going on.
