Athletic organization issues mandatory no-contact period


The Ohio High School Athletic Association has issued a coronavirus mandate for all school-sponsored sports.
A mandatory no-contact period goes into effect beginning Tuesday (March 17) through April 5.
Additionally, there will be a mandatory shutdown of facilities used for the purpose of conducting athletic activities for the same time period.
Earlier last week, the OHSAA postponed the remainder of the winter sports tournaments for wrestling, boys and girls basketball and ice hockey.
The organization sent out a recent media advisory from Jerry Snodgrass, the OHSAA executive director.
“The tournaments are postponed indefinitely,” according to the press release. “Given the rapidly changing events nationally and statewide, we are assessing the situation daily. It is impossible to make a determination today . . . the reason for continuing them to be ‘postponed.’
“If your team remains in the tournament, you need to remind them that the “non-interscholastic rule” remains in effect.”
