Earlier tonight, President of the United States Donald Trump announced the suspension of all travel from Europe, excluding Great Britain, for the next 30 days due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. There will also be exceptions made for Americans that undergo screenings.
The travel suspension will go into effect on Friday, March 13.
With WrestleMania 36 taking place on April 5, international travelers not from Great Britain would not be allowed into the United States to attend the event in Tampa, Florida. WrestleMania 35 was announced as having fans from 67 different countries in attendance.
With the NBA announcing they are suspending their season, NCAA announcing their Men’s and Women’s tournaments will be held in empty arenas, and other events around the country being canceled over Coronavirus fears, WrestleMania’s status is once again called into question. The City of Tampa announced earlier today that WrestleMania is scheduled to take place for now.
As was announced yesterday, the Mayor of Tampa will meet with Tampa officials on Thursday at 12 p.m. Eastern to discuss the status of large scale events happening in the city, which would include WrestleMania 36.
