As the Coronavirus outbreak continues in the country, the NBA announced on Wednesday it is suspending its season after a Utah Jazz player tested positive for the virus.

The NCAA also announced it would prohibit fans from attending March Madness games.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said earlier on Wednesday he would issue an order banning fans from NCAA Tournament games in Cleveland and Dayton prior to the NCAA’s announcement.
