The UIL announced Wednesday that they would require facemasks through the summer workouts and the upcoming school year, per Gov. Greg Abbott’s order. The new requirements say all employees, parents, visitors, and students over ten years old must wear a face mask or shield when entering an area where UIL activities are happening. They are also required when not actively exercising or practicing. Students can access locker rooms and engage in drills that involve one or more students on offense and defense beginning July 13.
