Winter Sports COVID

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds announced a new set of public health measures, including new mandates for high school sports. Each athlete will be allowed two spectators to attend basketball games and wrestling matches. That means student sections (pictured during a home volleyball match) will be absent this winter.

In lieu of Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds announcement of new public health measures that include new mandates for youth and high school sports, Iowa Falls-Alden Athletic Director Pat Norem took some comfort that the school district was already taking necessary steps to keep athletes as safe as possible. 

While the number of COVID-19 cases in the state continues to rise exponentially, Reynolds announced new restrictions for indoor games and events that exceed 25 people in attendance.
