The Minnesota State High School League has asked the Department of Health to modify its pandemic guidance on face masks.

The league says it wants health officials to consider allowing athletes to be mask-less while they are actively competing in outdoor sports.

Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm expressed reluctance toward the request. MSHSL says in their request to MDH that athletes would still have wear a mask while on the sideline or in the dugout.
