The State College Area School District board of directors has announced that winter and spring sports competition will conditionally begin early next year.
This comes after a health and safety plan was approved Monday by a 7 to 2 vote.
According to the district, the plan includes shorter competition schedules, mask-wearing, hand sanitization plus temperature checks for all athletes and coaches.
This would happen before practices and prior to travel for games and matches.
The target start date is New Year’s Day, but officials say that could change if local and statewide cases continue in the trend they are now or rise in the coming weeks.
