The United States Bowling Congress has canceled all remaining national events for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The full announcement can be read on bowl.com.
Governor Northam signed Executive Order Sixty-Five and presented the second phase of the “Forward Virginia” plan to continue safely and gradually easing public health restrictions while containing the spread of COVID-19. Unfortunately, bowling centers are not allowed to open yet. Unless something changes, they will be closed at least until Virginia enters Phase 3, which could be another 2 to 4 weeks.
