Today, preliminary guidelines involving high school and recreational sports teams to resume “voluntary workouts,” were released by the Wolf administration, as parts of the state move into the yellow and green phases.
These guidelines will guide participants on how to be safe from COVID during their activities.
Private and public K-12 schools must develop a plan that is goes by the Department of Education’s Guidance for Phased Reopening of Schools. It will also need to be approved by the local board of directors and posted on the school’s website.
Sports teams that are not affiliated with K-12 schools may resume practices as well, if they follow CDC guidelines.
College sports sanctioned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) may resume in-person practices following a safety plan that agrees with PDE’s Postsecondary Education Institutions and Adult Education Programs Guidance.
