Face Mask Update
Tue August 10, 2021
Updated All Sports Policy for Youth Recreational Sports
As has been widely reported, last week the Governor issued a new statewide mask mandate for preschool through 12th grade schools, day-cares, and long-term care facilities.
As those who frequently check the IAPD COVID-19 Resources webpage are already aware, the Governor’s press release and Executive Order 2021-18, which implements the mandate, were posted as soon as they were released last Wednesday, and updated Licensed Day Care & Licensed Exempt School-Age Guidance was posted as soon as it was released late Friday. Revised Public Health Guidance for Schools were also released and posted to the IAPD COVID-19 Resources webpage late yesterday.
We wanted to let you know that the IDPH has now just posted updates to the All Sports Policy.
We encourage you to review this updated guidance, particularly as it relates to indoor sports and masks.
