The Golden State Warriors will host the Brooklyn Nets in an empty Chase Center on Thursday.
"Due to escalating concerns about the spread of the coronavirus, and in consultation with the City and County of San Francisco, tomorrow night's game vs. the Nets at Chase Center will be played without fans," the team tweeted. "Fans with tickets to this game will receive a refund in the amount paid."
After Thursday's game, the Warriors are away from the Chase Center until March 25.
The team's decision followed an order from the San Francisco Health Office prohibiting events where 1,000 or more people assemble. The Warriors previously ignored a directive to not play Tuesday's game in front of fans.
