Monday, the Nebraska School Activities Association said it’s moving ahead with its scheduled opening of Fall high school football camps next Monday (August 10). The vote to re-open during the coronavirus pandemic was 8-0.
The only question is what the Omaha School District, the state’s largest district, will do. Media reports indicate that the Omaha schools may hold-off until August 31 to open its camps, which would change the overall landscape of the 2020 season.
Let's keep everyone safe & involved in activities by committing to wearing a mask & practicing social distancing! Great message from NSAA District 3 Board of Director Dr. Jon Cerny of @BRLDWolverines. #NSAAMaskUp #nebpreps pic.twitter.com/g50WadXC0Y— NSAA (@nsaahome) August 3, 2020
