Re: Recommendations for re-opening of the fall 2021 sports season
Good morning everyone,
The Section IV COVID19 Task Force Committee met this afternoon to discuss the re-opening of Section IV athletics for the fall 2021 season which begins Monday, August 23rd.
Consensus of the Committee currently is:
- Indoor sports (volleyball, girls swim) all will wear masks (swim while on deck).
- For outdoor sports (cheerleading, b/g cross-country, football, field hockey, b golf, b/g soccer, g tennis) will be optional to wear masks outdoors.
- Coaches who are not vaccinated are strongly recommended to wear masks outdoors.
- Social (physical) distancing will still be the norm both indoors and outdoors.
If you have any questions, please contact me at your convenience.
Have a great weekend and great start to the 2021 fall sports season.
Be well and stay safe !!
