PITTSBURGH — Several local high school sports programs are facing COVID-19 hurdles despite the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association giving them the green light to have a fall season.
The PIAA gave the green light to schools across the state on Friday with a vote of 25-5. The vote came despite the recommendation from Gov. Tom Wolf and Secretary of Health Dr. Levine that sports seasons should be postponed due to COVID-19.
The Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League will send its guidelines to schools on Tuesday, including how to handle cancellations in the event of COVID-19 cases. Schools are being asked to let WPIAL know if they’re playing by Sept. 1.
