Lower-risk sports include:

  • Tennis
  • Soccer
  • Cross country
  • Field hockey
  • Swimming

Higher-risk sports include:

  • Tackle football
  • Basketball
  • Wrestling
  • Rugby
  • Ice hockey
  • Volleyball

Gov. Cuomo will meet with NYSPHSAA Section Executive Director and the state COVID Task Force on Tuesday, Aug. 25 to review specific guidance.
