Health system leader says other cities should follow Phoenix and cancel sports events

By Stephanie Innes | Arizona Republic

Phoenix will immediately cancel tournaments scheduled at its facilities for this December and January, according to Mayor Kate Gallego’s office.

All Arizona cities should follow the lead of Phoenix and cancel athletic tournaments because of the COVID-19 situation, a clinical leader at Arizona’s largest health system says.

Dr. Marjorie Bessel, chief clinical officer for Banner Health, says she’d like to see other Arizona jurisdictions follow the city of Phoenix by pausing all sports tournaments until community spread of the coronavirus decreases significantly.

“They need to be paused until the uncontrolled spread that we are experiencing in our communities and in the state of Arizona gets to a different level.”
