According to officials, students planning to participate in winter sports — basketball, bowling, cheerleading, indoor track, swimming and wrestling — must provide proof of being fully vaccinated by December 18. The requirement will also apply to students participating in spring sports — badminton, baseball, lacrosse, softball, tennis, track & field, and volleyball. Proof of vaccination for those sports must be provided by March 1, 2022.
Students are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine or two weeks after a single dose vaccine.
A religious or medical exemption applies, and student-athletes will continue to be tested twice a week until they provide proof of vaccination. Students who do not do provide the proper documentation by the deadline will be ineligible to participate until they are fully vaccinated.
