Looks Like High School Sports Will Be Played This Fall

“We certainly cannot guarantee that problems will not arise but we believe that we’ve developed a reasonably safe environment for competition at the interscholastic level,” said Lombardi.

“The governor has been very clear about that, there are no plans to do that,“ said Levine
