As school districts and public organizations in Murrieta continue to consider appropriate response to the world coronavirus outbreak, Murrieta Valley Unified School District today announced cancellation of all extra-curricular activities, including high school athletic events.

In a news release today, MVUSD officials said all such events will be cancelled at least through the end of March.

"We deeply respect the work and dedication our students, staff, and families give to our extra-curricular activities, athletics, and events. We sincerely apologize for having to modify, postpone, and in some cases, cancel these extra-curricular activities," the statement read.

Wednesday night, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced events of more than 250 people should be cancelled, and that smaller local events should provide six feet of distance between attendees. The extent of this impact is evolving with each hour.

Newsom announced that the state has about 8,200 testing kits, which are being distributed to labs throughout the state. Health officials announced that if residents exhibit symptoms, including fever, dry cough and shortness of breath, they should see their doctor before a determination would be made about testing.

Dr. Cameron Kaiser, public health director for Riverside County, announced this morning that eight people in Riverside County have been diagnosed as having the novel coronavirus. The latest case announced today involved a resident in Coachella Valley who is self-quarantined.

Five of the eight patients got the disease during travel. Two of them contracted the disease on a cruise ship and were hospitalized in Northern California before returning to Riverside County.
