HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is recommending, but not mandating, that there be no school sports in his state for the rest of the year.

During a press conference, Wolf said “the recommendation is that we don’t do any sports until January 1st.”






“The guidance is that we ought to avoid any congregate settings,” Wolf said. “And that means anything that brings people together is going to help that virus get us and we ought to do everything we can to defeat that virus. So any time we get together for any reason, that’s a problem because it makes it easier for that virus to spread.”

The PIAA had previously given schools the go ahead to decide on whether or nor to allow fall sports.
