Columbus, OH - The U.S. Trotting Association understands that there is a great deal of anxiety and confusion regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the impact that it is having on everyday life and harness racing.

The USTA is monitoring and following the guidelines and advice of federal, state and local government authorities. Here in Ohio, our governor has declared a state of emergency and closed schools, restaurants and bars.

While these circumstances are creating personal and professional challenges for all of us, our first and foremost concern is for you and your families. The health and safety of our members, employees, racing fans and visitors to our office are our top priorities during this public health crisis.

In order to minimize the possibility of being infected by and spreading the virus at work, the USTA is closing our office to visitors effective Monday (March 16) and will have most of our employees work remotely from home. Only employees whose functions require that they be present in the office will work from there.

However, be assured that the USTA will continue to provide the reliable access to important services that are needed. Many USTA employees already work remotely at night and over the weekends. Preparations have been made and are already in place to allow us to seamlessly conduct business remotely.

As a reminder, all online services are available as usual. In addition, pictures of completed forms can also be emailed to with payments made by including that information in the photos or by calling the phone numbers on the forms.

As new developments occur and additional information becomes available, we will keep you informed.

Media Relations Manager
