Oregon governor announces outdoor contact sports can resume

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Gov. Kate Brown says some outdoor contact sports, including high school football, can resume this week. In addition, the Oregon Health Authority reported Wednesday that data shows a “sharp decrease” in daily cases, hospitalizations and deaths from the previous week. In “lower risk” and “moderate risk” counties,  practices and games for outdoor contact sports can resume. In “high risk” and “extreme risk” counties, where COVID-19 remains more widespread, schools and other sports organizations can opt-in to resuming outdoor contact sports with additional protocols in place.
