On a day where the Big Ten Conference took steps to pare down its 2020 football schedules due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, one state affirmed its plans to move forward at the high school level. The Utah High School Activities Association board of trustees gave the go-ahead to continue plans to begin the fall season as scheduled.
The UHSAA's governing board also affirmed its stance of allowing schools and local schools district to determine whether participation is allowable and advisable under state and local guidelines.
According to a release distributed by the organization, the board of trustees will meet again later this month to review the situation.
The announcement out of Utah came almost simultaneously as another from New Mexico, where the NMAA outlined plans to shift its football and soccer seasons from the fall to the spring.
