Elyria Postpones Athletic Competitions through December 7

MEDIA ADVISORY: Elyria Postpones Athletic Competitions through December 7


Given concerns about the increasing number of COVID-19 cases, Elyria Schools is extending the period of time in which athletes will not be allowed to compete in inter-league competition, Elyria Schools Superintendent Ann Schloss said. 


The postponement period is in effect from now to Dec. 7, 2020. 


The district’s administrators will review this guideline the first week of December and make further determinations about ending or extending this period. The trajectory and spread of the COVID-19 virus in the Lorain County community will affect those decisions.    


Elyria Schools is still permitting many types of athletic activities in small, controlled settings, including skills training and some practices. Coaches for each sport will communicate these opportunities to players throughout this week. 


The school district had previously announced a postponement period that would last through the weekend of Nov. 28-29, but the postponement will now apply until Dec. 7.
