(WAND-TV) -- Today, the IHSA Board of Directors met and made some changes for the spring season.

One of the highlights of this meeting is that low-risk outdoor sports are no longer required to wear masks while competing.

These sports are bass fishing, baseball, softball, tennis, and track & field. According to the IHSA, students must continue to wear masks in these sports when they are not actively competing, such as when they are sitting on the bench.

Other topics discussed during this meeting include "a reduction in contact days this summer, a three-year membership assessment plan to aid in the IHSA's economic recovery, and setting several Spring State Final dates."
