The 2020 BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, Calif., has been cancelled due to the spread of the novel coronavirus, reports The New York Times.

Last week, the tournament announced that it would be taking precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus.

However, the event was called off March 8 after a confirmed case of COVID-19 was detected locally.

This is the first time the tournament has ever been cancelled.
