Our view: Want football? It's time to wear a mask
September 2, 2020
It isn’t often you hear an athletic director beg fans to follow directions.
During last week’s football scrimmage with Mountain View, the school district’s athletics director, Tony Beardsley, did exactly that in an attempt to get fans to follow health guidelines designed to limit the potential spread of the novel coronavirus. A large group of children behind Wolves Stadium having their own football game, none of them wearing masks or socially distancing themselves as they played. A threat to end the scrimmage because health directives weren’t being followed was also made.
