The Mississippi High School Activities Association (MHSAA) released a press release saying they currently have no immediate plans to restrict high school activities because of the coronavirus situation, but that they are closely monitoring the situation.
As the need arises, the release stated that the MHSAA will restrict activities after consulting with their sports medicine advisory committee.
Some possible precautions include restricting fan attendance or suspending competitions completely.
“Contingency plans are being formulated if statewide school cancellations or delays occur and will be implemented if necessary by the MHSAA,” MHSAA executive director Don Hinton said. “Local school administrators reserve the right to postpone any contest or competition. Spring fine arts activities and sports championship events will be reviewed and appropriate responses and actions will be taken.”
