High school, youth sports in Minnesota to resume Jan. 4, but games are TBD
December 17, 2020
Winter sports for high school and youth teams can hold practice on Jan. 4 with the hope, but no assurance yet, of playing games again by the middle of January.
Gov. Tim Walz announced Wednesday that the state is extending the four-week pause on youth and adult sports, set to expire Friday night, for two more weeks. The pause had been enacted to help slow fast-moving community spread of the COVID-19 virus.
"We need to get kids playing again, we know that,'' Walz said in a video presentation to the state. "We know that the numbers show that kids aren't as susceptible.''
