The city of San Francisco announced a ban on gatherings of over 1,000 people, which includes home games of the Golden State Warriors, for at least two weeks, as reported by San Fransisco Chronicle.

The ban is a result of the spread of the coronavirus, which was officially declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization on Wednesday.

The Warriors currently have five road games in the next two weeks with only two home games vs. Brooklyn Nets on Thursday and a March 25 game against Atlanta Hawks. For now, the Chase Center will be empty for game vs. Brooklyn on Thursday.

Τhe Warriors issued the following press release.

Due to escalating concerns about the spread of COVID-19 and in consultation with the City and County of San Francisco, the Golden State Warriors announced today that tomorrow night’s game vs. the Brooklyn Nets at Chase Center will be played without fans. In addition, all events through March 21 will be canceled or postponed at this time. Fans with tickets to Thursday and Saturday night’s games will receive a refund in the amount paid. Guests who purchased tickets to a concert occurring at Chase Center during the impacted dates will be notified through the promoter directly to either receive a refund or exchange for a rescheduled show at Chase Center.

We will continue to monitor this evolving situation closely to determine the next steps for future games and events. We appreciate the understanding and patience of our fans, guests, and partners during this unprecedented time.

Scheduled events through March 21 at Chase Center include:

Thursday, March 12 – Golden State Warriors vs. Brooklyn Nets*

Friday, March 13 – Tame Impala (postponed)

Saturday, March 14 – Santa Cruz Warriors vs. Austin Spurs (moved to Santa Cruz)*

Thursday, March 19 – Post Malone (cancelled or postponed)
