Illinois High School Association adjusts COVID-19 protocols

ILLINOIS (WFIE) - The IHSA has adjusted its COVID-19 protocols once again, forcing teams to revert back to non-contact drills and practices.

The announcement comes after the IHSA cleared schools to move into Phase 4 of the return-to-play guidelines that included allowing contact.

Along with no-contact practices, all athletes practicing indoors must wear a mask. Athletes practicing outside must also wear masks, unless they are socially distant.

Scrimmages in sports that require contact - such as football, soccer or wrestling are not allowed.

There is also a strict 50-person limit, including spectators, on all indoor activities.
