MIAA: Masks mandatory for student-athletes, coaches for indoor activities

BOSTON — The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) has released new mask guidance following the school mandate issued Wednesday by Education Commissioner Jeff Riley.

According to the MIAA, masks will be required for student-athletes and coaches for any indoor activities throughout the fall sports season.

Masks, however, will not be required and will remain optional for student-athletes and coaches for outdoor activities.

Officials say they will follow DESE’s lead and review ahead of Oct. 1.
