GOVERNOR J-B PRITZKER SAYS HE WILL NOT GIVE IN TO PRESSURE ABOUT LETTING YOUTH SPORTS RESUME. 

 

THE GOVERNOR HAS BEEN HEARING FROM A LOT OF COACHES, PARENTS AND STUDENT ATHLETES WHO WANT TO GET BACK ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD OR HOCKEY RINK. HE SAYS THE RISK OF SPREADING COVID-19 IS TOO HIGH AND THAT YOUR ACTIONS AFFECT OTHERS.

 

 

AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE EXPERT AT THE GOVERNOR’S PRESS CONFERENCE AGREED AND SAID IT’S NOT JUST THE ACTUAL GAME THAT’S A PROBLEM. HE SAYS A SPORTS TEAM IS TOGETHER IN THE LOCKER ROOM, WORKING OUT IN THE GYM AND WHILE TRAVELING, GIVING THE VIRUS MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO SPREAD.
