The UIL is strongly recommending schools close summer workouts, rehearsals, practices, and instruction between July 3-July 12, resuming Monday, July 13. The recommendation is in anticipation of the July 4 holiday and the potential for increased social interactions that could spread COVID-19. Wednesday’s announcement is only a recommendation. Schools are not required to cancel workouts. The statement added that the UIL would continue to work with state officials and monitor CDC and other federal guidance related to COVID-19 to determine any potential modifications to UIL summer guidelines.
