New Covid UK Variant B.1.1.7 Transmission in School Youth Sports Increasing

Transmission of the new Covid-10 UK variant, B.1.1.7 and other variants are becoming more widespread and the most common strain in the U.S.  Sports that require close contact such as wrestling, hockey, basketball and other sports seem to be where the spread is coming from in schools, not so much in the classroom according to the CDC.  Until the adolescents are vaccinated, we will need to be vigilant to follow the CDC guidelines for testing and prevention.   Spend less time indoors if possible when playing sports and stay away from the locker rooms until the youth are vaccinated.
