IDPH Clears High Risk Sports in Phase 4

If your region is in phase 4 of the Governor's COVID mitigation plan, sports are back. 


Monticello Athletic Director Dan Sheehan says a joint decision from IDPH and Lt. Governor Jesse Ruiz has cleared the way for the return of competitions for all Illinois sports. 



Sheehan indicates there are a lot of details still to be ironed out but this is a big step for all athletes in the State of Illinois. 


The Illinois High School Association Board is set to meet this Wednesday to confirm the high school sports schedule for the rest of the school year.  Previously, the board had set football practices to start February 15th, games starting March 5th and the season ending May First.  Baseball and softball seasons were previously set to have practices start April 19th, with games starting May 3rd and the season ending June 26th.


More information on the resumption of high school sports in Illinois, can be found on the Illinois High School Association COVID page which is linked here.
