Boston Public Schools Suspends Athletic Activities Until Further Notice

A week after Boston Public Schools announced it was going fully remote as cases of COVID-19 continue to rise across the city, the district has announced that athletics will also be suspended for the time being.

A spokesperson for BPS said in a statement to GBH News on Tuesday that the district has suspended all athletic activities until further notice as it has moved to fully remote learning and as the city deals with the coronavirus positivity rate.

The move impacts all competitions, practice and “any other organized physical activities.” The spokesperson wrote that BPS will consider resuming athletics once the citywide positivity rate for COVID-19 is at or below 5% for two consecutive weeks.
