HARRISBURG (93.7 The Fan/AP) - Pennsylvania is working on guidelines to allow sporting events, exhibitions and leagues to get back to some form of normalcy after sports were shutdown as a result of the coronavirus.

The move was made to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Governor Tom Wolf told reports Wednesday that he has been in touch with NASCAR, the NFL, NHL, Major League Baseball and other organizations to try to figure out how they can resume practices and games.

He said he expects that his administration will produce guidelines for the various venues and sports in the coming days.

He adds the success of the events and leagues will depend on whether people feel safe to attend and participate.

Sporting events will most likely return without fans.
