The Fall sports season was moved to Winter, as Illinois football is set to begin in February, but now there will be even more of an overlap.

Swimming and bowling were already in season, but with Governor Pritzker's announcement, the IHSA has suspended those sports until further notice. Basketball has not started in the state of Illinois, but could be pushed back until after January. 

IHSA Executive Director Craig Anderson said the board will on on Thursday to, "continue plotting out potential paths for IHSA sports through the remainder of the school year."

Governor Pritzker was invited to Thursday's meeting, but the invitation was declined.
