Erie County Health: Wrestling up in the air
April 22, 2021


Last week, the Erie County Department of Health recommended that wrestling not have a 2021 season due to the risks of spreading COVID-19 and ruling that the risks are too great.

The ECDOH recommended postponing or canceling the season based on high levels of community transmission and the inability of competing wrestlers to wear a mask. Section VI, in January, decided to move the season to the spring.

Wrestling has been competed over the winter by other sections, including Section V (Rochester), which ended its season before starting Fall Two (football and volleyball) in March.
