COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
The Missouri State High School Activities Association released guidance ahead of fall sports and activities beginning for high schools across the state.
MSHSAA says while it will continue to update its website, it will not put any statewide restrictions in place.
ABC 17 News will talk with state sports officials live at 6 a.m. You can watch the full conversation here.
Instead, the group says local health departments should take the lead in deciding what athletes can and cannot do as well as any restrictions regarding attendance and masking.
For example, Columbia Public Schools says in its plan that restrictions may be put into place if cases continue to rise.
Jefferson City School District’s current plan has no limits or restrictions on athletic events.
This comes as Missouri reported 11,866 new COVID-19 cases in the past 7 days according to the state’s website.
Missouri’s positivity rate currently sits at 13.2 percent.
