BERKELEY- Golden Gate Fields has suspended live horse racing within the end of November as a result of the outbreak of coronavirus.
The area track in San Francisco Bay last Friday reported a seven-day temporary closure to address a COVID-19 pandemic. Track authorities say Golden Gate’s means have undergone a total cleaning and all backstretch workers and employees have had COVID-19 testing. The test results were imparted to the Berkeley public health department.
Anyone testing positive is needed to isolate and is not allowed to return to Golden Gate Fields until being cleared by public health authorities.
Track authorities say the 1,300 horse corralled at the track will keep on receiving daily care and exercise. The track will announce a reopening date as promptly as time permits.
