NCAA releases recommended guidelines for return to play
The NCAA has released guidelines regarding how schools should return to sports in the middle of the pandemic.
Daily self-health checks and testing players for COVID-19 within 72 hours of competition for high contact risk sports including football are among the recommended courses of action. Pausing or discontinuing athletic activitiesare also suggested as a potential option.
“When we made the extremely difficult decision to cancel last spring’s championships it was because there was simply no way to conduct them safely,” said NCAA President Mark Emmert. “This document lays out the advice of health care professionals as to how to resume college sports if we can achieve an environment where COVID-19 rates are manageable.”
The NCAA’s guidelines are not mandates.
