D.C. High Schoolers Need to Wear Masks During Indoor Sports, DCSAA Says

D.C. student-athletes, vaccinated or not, should wear masks during practice and while competing indoors and seek to maintain six feet of distance, the D.C. State Athletic Association said in its latest recommendations.

The recommendations for the fall sports season are based on information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the D.C. Department of Health, WTOP reported. The DCSAA classifies basketball, hockey, lacrosse, football, soccer, cheerleading and wrestling as high-risk sports.

Student-athletes who can’t maintain the proper social distance and unvaccinated participants in high-risk sports should be tested regularly, according to the recommendations.

The athletic association will let local education agencies decide whether spectators can attend games and events.

“While it was exciting to return to the field to play this spring, we must remain vigilant against the spread of COVID-19,” said DCSAA interim Director Kenny Owens, WTOP reported.
