TARC Suspended Due to COVID-19

From an email issued by The American Rocketry Challenge, or TARC:

Hi Rocketeers, 
As always, one of our priorities is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our entire community. Therefore, we ask that you follow all guidance you are receiving from your schools, as well as state and local health departments, on COVID-19. 
We are closely monitoring the situation with school closures across the country, as school groups compose a great number of our teams. Due to the growing number of extended closures, all qualification flight submissions are suspended effective immediately. At this time, we ask that you do not submit any additional qualification flight scores and cancel all scheduled launches. 
We are still determining when and in what form the National Finals may take place. We will keep you updated in the coming days regarding resumption of launches/submission of qualification flights. 
Additionally, we are also indefinitely extending the submission deadlines for the Engineering Notebook and Marketing Competitions. Please follow the instructions on the competition pages on our website to learn how to submit. 
Please let our team know if you have any questions in the meantime. 
Jeremy Davis 
Program Manager, The American Rocketry Challenge
