“A return to normalcy,” is a phrase that’s been thrown around sidelines and bench areas since the pandemic first interrupted sports activity across the nation last March, and new guidance from the authorities could be the next step in getting back to what was “normal.” 

The Governor’s Office and the Department for Public Health announced Tuesday that there will be an easing on mask rules for outdoor sports and activities. Masks are now being suspended for “all outdoor sports and outdoor sport-activities in KHSAA member high schools and regulated middle schools” as long as the event/activity has less than 1,000 attendees. This includes coaches, uniformed players not in the contest, officials, administrators and fans.
