The Illinois High School Association (IHSA) Board announced Monday that students competing in low-risk outdoor sports are no longer required to wear a mask while competing.
On Monday the board decided in-season sports like baseball, softball, tennis, and track & field will no longer require those athletes to wear masks unless on the bench.
Officials at the events must still wear face coverings unless they are practicing social distancing.
The Illinois Department of Public Health also recommended high-risk sports continue offering COVID-19 testing for those teams.
