Important Information regarding interscholastic athletic programs within the declared Red, Orange and Yellow zones.
The Empire State Development’s FAQ in response to New York’s cluster action initiative (linked below #7) states:
“Q: Can sports and recreational activities take place within the zones?
A: In the red and orange zones, schools are closed for in-person activities, including school-sponsored sports. For sports and recreational activities that are unaffiliated with a school, local governments are permitted to determine whether – and which – low-risk recreational activities, as well as parks and other public spaces may be open.
In the yellow zone, all sports and recreational activities must strictly adhere to DOH Guidance for Sports and Recreation during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency.”
Listed below is the hierarchy upon which schools receive their guidance:
NYSDOH/Governor Cuomo’s office------> NYS Department of Education/NYSPHSAA------> Sections------>Leagues----->Schools
**** At any time individual School Boards of Education can dictate a school’s involvement in Athletics.
