DENVER — The Denver Post announced on Wednesday it will be suspending its regular sports section "until things start returning to normal." 

In a statement published by editor Lee Ann Colacioppo, it was announced that the current sports staff will now be free to help the newspaper focus on covering the impact of coronavirus in the state of Colorado. 

The decision was made because due to so many cancellations in the sports world, "trying to fill an entire sports section is virtually impossible." 

On Sunday, Monday and Tuesday the Post will still produce a sports section, it will just be smaller than normal. Wednesday through Saturday any sports news will be found in the main section of the paper.
