IHSA Phase 4 Changes

The Illinois High School Association is making changes to its Phase 4 Return to Play plan. These include no contact drills or physical contact among athletes, players and coaches need to be wearing face masks the whole time unless they’re socially distanced outside, and 7 on 7 football leagues have been cancelled. The IHSA said these changes are due to an increase in positive COVID-19 cases among high school teams around the state.
