Earlier today, there was an announcement from Albemarle County Schools that winter sports will be postponed until January 11th. While COVID-19 is in our community and has some mild increases, the test positivity rate is very low compared to the rest of the country. Youth are the least at risk from this virus. All around us, private schools have been physically in school. They are playing sports, including games without any major issues. Albemarle County's decision is generated by fear and not by reason. The real risk is the mental and physical health of student-athletes who cannot participate in the sports they love. Additionally, each athlete has already signed a COVID release form. The decision of whether or not to play should be up to the athlete and their family. Please help us regain our season.
