D.C. High School Sports Green-Lighted to Restart Friday

The D.C. State Athletic Association has approved restarting high school sports in the city beginning Friday after Mayor Muriel Bowser eased coronavirus-related restrictions earlier this week.

High-contact sports can resume with no coronavirus restrictions, the association said. However, there are some rules that need to be followed, particularly for those who are unvaccinated.

The DCSAA says unvaccinated coaches and athletes need to wear a mask while participating in any athletic-related activity, including conditioning drills, practice and games. The rule applies to unvaccinated coaches and student-athletes standing on the sidelines.

Coaches and student-athletes suspected of being infected with the coronavirus will have to undergo a 10-to-14-day quarantine as required by D.C. health department guidelines.

Additionally, coaches and student-athletes are urged by the association to get vaccinated “as soon as possible.”
