COVID 19 Updates

The Alabama Athletic Commission met today, March 13, 2020, regarding COVID-19 and the 16 permitted events scheduled in Alabama. The following decision was made: All currently issued Event Permits are valid and while the venue may cancel the event it is not being cancelled by the AAC. The Commission voted to authorize Chief Inspectors at events to suspend any licensee and remove anyone from any current event in the state, who shows any symptoms of COVID-19 or any positive test results from any other illness. Anyone whose license that is suspended will remain suspended until a negative result from the proper testing is submitted to the Executive Director of the Commission. No other event permit will be approved or issued by the Commission until further notice.
