TSSAA To Keep 2020 Covid Rules In Place
The TSSAA voted on Monday to keep rules regarding missed games due to COVID-19 in place for 2021-22 sports season for Tennessee schools. So basically, The pandemic rules that guide what happens if a school has to postpone any games due to COVID-19 infections or concerns that were passed in 2020 will still be in effect this year. As a refresher…If a school has to postpone, the two schools have the option to reschedule the game at another date. If a new date cannot be worked out, the opposing team would receive the win for seeding purposes — but it would not count as a loss for the team that cancels. The TSSAA said if the team that cannot play is the visiting team, it would remain the visiting team the following year.
Any student that has tested positive for COVID-19 will need to received clearance from a medical provider before they can resume team activities.
