COVID-19 concerns lead to changes across American professional sports leagues


MILWAUKEE, Wis. - The Milwaukee Bucks will join the rest of the NBA, as well as the NHL, MLS and MLB in banning non-team members from locker rooms pre and post-game.

The change, which will be implemented across the various leagues over the course of this week, aims to protect players and teams from the spread of COVID-19.

League officials are unsure how long this ban will last, although they have said it will be temporary.

Other leagues, like Serie A soccer in Italy, have gone as far as to play games in the month of March without fans. On Tuesday, the Ivy League became the first collegiate league to cancel a postseason tournament.
