[ARCHIVED] MN Stay Safe Guidance for Organized Sports

Sports guidance

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is working to help Minnesotans safely get back to the sports they love. On Friday, Governor Walz announced a careful turn of the dial to allow for more activity, which included updated guidance for youth and adult sports. 

According to MDH, different sports carry different risks of COVID-19. These depend on how close people are, whether they share equipment, and other factors as guided by the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic organizations, NCAA and others. Different risk levels mean different precautions. See guidance for youth and adult sports, including the full list of sports at Stay Safe Guidance for Organized Sports.

MDH also announced Minnesota has averaged over 11,000 tests per day for the last five days. Tests are available and they’re a valuable tool to curb the spread of COVID-19. Find a provider near you.
