MECHANICSBURG — On Friday, Gov. Wolf issued a directive to close all schools in the state for 10 business days starting Monday. This means all school activities including sports practices, plays, musicals, mock trials, field trips, etc.

The intent of this is to limit people gathering together to minimize the potential spread of the coronavirus. The PIAA has been informed that some school sports teams may be organizing captains practices or informal workouts offsite. It’s the PIAA’s position that this is contrary to the intent of the governor’s orders and these activities are not permitted.
