On Wednesday, Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf released a preliminary guidance structure for the return of high school sports in the state in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
It seems like it’s very strong sign that the state will allow high school football to take place this coming fall—but it will have to adhere to a protocol spelled out.
Though, it seems like attendance at high school events will be limited—if at all. Facilities may not exceed 50% of total occupancy otherwise permitted by law.
Governor Wolf stated:
“Pre-K to 12 (PK-12) school sports under the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) and the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association (PISAA) are permitted to resume in counties designated in the yellow and green phases, in alignment with the PDE preliminary guidance for phased reopening of Pre-K to 12 Schools and the CDC considerations for youth sports.”
As of June 5, these 33 counties are in the yellow phase: Adams, Beaver, Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Chester, Columbia, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Erie, Franklin, Huntingdon, Juniata, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Luzerne, Mifflin, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Northumberland, Perry, Philadelphia, Pike, Schuylkill, Susquehanna, Union, Wayne, Wyoming and York.
As of June 5, these 34 counties are in the green phase: Allegheny, Armstrong, Bedford, Blair, Bradford, Butler, Cambria, Cameron, Centre, Clarion, Clearfield, Clinton, Crawford, Elk, Fayette, Forest, Fulton, Greene, Indiana, Jefferson, Lawrence, Lycoming, McKean, Mercer, Montour, Potter, Snyder, Somerset, Sullivan, Tioga, Venango, Warren, Washington and Westmoreland….Read More
