From here: http://www.illinoisolympiad.org/

Belleville East and IIT regionals are cancelled (would have been this Saturday.)

No statement about COD regional (also this Saturday) or Rock Valley (next Saturday). Presumably they're going ahead until they aren't.

I mean if this doesn't clear up soon enough, the national tournament is probably getting cancelled if not at least rescheduled.

Nationals just Tweeted that SONT 2020 is cancelled. 2021 will be a replay of the 2020 rules....

Yep, Nats has been cancelled, and just before that Florida's State tourney cancelled too.

Keeping the same rules as 2020 for the 2021 season is also pretty bonkers; what a wild week it's been so far.
