Summer workouts for Texas high school students may be put on hold.
The University Interscholastic League is recommending they pause all activities Friday and not resume until a week from Monday.
The UIL is concerned people will gather for the Fourth of July holiday and there will be a spike in COVID-19 infections.
"In anticipation of the July 4 holiday and the potential for increased social interactions that could spread COVID-19, UIL is recommending schools consider closing summer workouts, rehearsals, practices and instruction between July 3-July 12, resuming July 13,” the league said in a statement.
The UIL said it will continue to monitor recommended health and safety guidelines and could make changes to its own summer guidelines.
