By Ray Hamill — The H-DNL has submitted the California Interscholastic Federation’s return to activity guidelines to the county health department for approval.

The CIF guidelines were released earlier this month, with the state’s prep sports governing body scheduled to meet again in July to make a final decision on how to proceed with the fall sports.

All high school sports in the state have been on hold since March due to ongoing concerns over COVID-19.

But with the state gradually reopening, the CIF is preparing to do the same, beginning with the release of the return to activity guidelines.

According to the CIF, the document “is intended to be a framework for schools and school districts to consider in designing return to physical activity/training standards that are in accordance with state and local county requirements. 

“These guidelines are meant to assist schools and school districts as they begin to return to on campus physical activity/training but are not intended to supersede the state and local county directives designed to ensure student health and safety.”
