High school sports are back after the executive board voted to allow the winter activities to take place. The vote was 5 to 4.

Last week, the Arizona Interscholastic Association announced they were cancelling winter sports because of the spike in COVID-19 cases.

While no fans will be allowed to attend games, the AIA has agreed to allow two parents or guardians per athlete.

As for athletes, they will need to submit a COVID-19 monitoring form, and show proof that they meet all the requirements.

Dr. Ross Goldberg with the Arizona Medical Association says playing sports should be OK if schools take proper precautions.
