Quarantine rules change for high school athletes

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine loosened quarantine guidelines for students involved in spring sports during a Thursday press briefing.

Student athletes won't need to quarantine if they are exposed to COVID-19 in the classroom while masked, DeWine said.

"The good news is spring sports are basically outside," DeWine said. "And that makes things better."

DeWine announced in late December that students exposed to the virus in school while masked did not have to quarantine from school. Those students were expected to stay home from extracurriculars, however.
