Pritzker announces new restrictions on sports

In his daily COVID-19 briefing Wednesday, Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced new restrictions on sports in Illinois, including the Illinois High School Association, which is currently meeting to discuss the status of high school sports in the fall.

Pritzker announced that sports will be broken down into risk groups. He cited sports such as golf, tennis and baseball as low-risk, sports such as basketball, soccer and volleyball as medium-risk and sports like football, hockey and lacrosse as high-risk.

Each risk category will have four different tiers of activity allowed. The lower the risk the sport is, the more activity those sports will be allowed on the tier system. 

The restrictions cover youth sports in the state, but not college or professional. More information concerning the high school sports season is expected from the IHSA later this afternoon.
