Reduced Case Rate Means Outdoor Contact Sports Can Resume

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– Beginning Friday, February 26, San Bernardino County can resume high-contact and moderate-contact outdoor sports, under certain conditions. New state guidelines now permit such sports, “as long as they meet a specific rate case criteria” — namely, an infection case rate at or below 14 per 100,000 residents.

We’re pleased to report that our county has succeeded in reducing our case rate below that threshold, reporting 12.8 per 100,000 residents, which means sports may resume. This includes high-contact sports such as football, rugby and water polo, and moderate-contact sports played outdoors, including baseball, cheerleading and softball.

To learn more about the updated guidance and obtain information, such as specific requirements for weekly COVID-19 testing, review the full guidelines here.
