State issues new guidance on youth sports during COVID-19
The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has issued new guidance on youth sports participation during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The guidance recommends that youth sports games and scrimmages resume June 24 or later for outdoor sports and July 1 or later for indoor sports.
The new guidance seeks to balance the goals of minimizing disease transmission and allowing young people to engage in sports activities that have important physical, emotional and social benefits.
Teams can start returning to competition by following MDH’s guidance. The guidance also outlines preferred timelines for games, and is described in detail in the COVID-19 Sports Guidance for Youth and Adults (PDF) document. More information is available on the MDH website at Community Settings: COVID-19....
