Anchorage School District officials will lift the ban on high school football practice due COVID-19, allowing teams to begin practicing on August 17, instead of August 20.
Last month, the ASD called a halt to workouts because of a spike in coronavirus cases in the district.
According to the Anchorage Daily News, the practices will be for conditioning only with no tackling and every workout must be outside. Everyone must stay ten feet from each other and wear masks when not engaged in vigorous activities. Temperatures will be taken at the start of every practice.
The big question now is when can teams start playing games?
The regular season starts August 21, but the Anchorage schools won’t be ready. According to the ADN story, it’s possible that they could be ready for games on September 4-5.
