Statement from the North Carolina High School Athletic Association/NCHSAA:
As stated by the governor, we have been in communication with the Department of Health and Human Services concerning next steps for a return to athletic activities across the state.
Since we have not yet had an opportunity to discuss the guidelines mentioned by the Governor and Dr. Cohen with a broader audience in our membership, we will spend the next several days discussing options, opportunities and best practices for resuming activity with our board of directors and sports medicine advisory committee, in addition to other stakeholder groups such as principals, athletic director, coaches groups, etc.
These conversations will help us determine a more specific and detailed path forward.
Here is just one of many thoughts, coming in from Twitter:
