The NBA is suspended for at least 30 days as a result of the COVID-19 virus. This leaves arena workers who are dependent on events at the Moda Center short of income. Jason Quick of The Athletic tweeted this morning that the Portland Trail Blazers are coming up with contingency plans to help part-time workers affected by the shutdown.

No details are public at this time as to what the remedy will involve.
