The University Interscholastic League recently announced it was recommending schools cease all workouts and practices starting on Friday, July 3 until Monday July 13.
The goal is to reduce students’ and coaches’ risk of exposure to COVID-19.
Denver City had already decided to cancel their workouts on their own.
The full statement released by the UIL follows:
“In anticipation of the July 4 holiday and the potential for increased social interactions that could spread COVID-19, the UIL is recommending schools consider closing summer workouts, rehearsals, practices and instruction between July 3 to July 12 resuming Monday, July 13. For schools in areas experiencing community spread of COVID-19, this temporary suspension will reduce the risk of exposure and provide an opportunity to review current plans and re-evaluate local context in order to make informed decisions moving forward. The UIL will continue to work with state officials and monitor CDC and other federal guidance to determine any potential modifications to UIL summer guidelines.”
