MSHSL announcement on March 15

Effective from Wednesday, March 18 through Friday, March 27, there will be no Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) activities at any member school. This includes all participation including, but not limited to training, practices, scrimmages and contests. The previous MSHSL directive prohibiting scrimmages, contests and competitions with other MSHSL programs for spring activities and athletics will continue through April 6.

As COVID-19 is rapidly evolving, the MSHSL will continue to monitor the most current information and directives from the MN Department of Health, the governor's office and the Centers for Disease Control. The MSHSL will continue to work within the recommendations in its actions and decisions.
Additional information will be provided as it becomes available and as decisions are made.

The best COVID-19 prevention activities are the same activities that parents teach children when discussing influenza and the common cold. They include these four major guidelines to follow:
1. use quality hand-washing practices (20 seconds or more with soap);
2. cover your cough or sneeze;
3. stay home if you do not feel well;
4. avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

Finally, I ask that you enjoy time at home spent with family.

"Be well, stay well."
