1/28/21 Weekly Bull

Update from the CIF – The Covid data continues to improve quickly.  Today’s Zoom meeting with the CIF Commissioners was the most upbeat in a year.  Two sports are starting on Monday (M/W Cross Country and M/W Swim and Dive.  We were also told “don’t be surprised” if the Governor makes additional changes to the tier system which allows for more sports to begin.  I’ve heard this same statement from another person within the CIF system which causes me to be hopeful.  Both statements led me to believe if there were a change, we should hear something by February 12th.  Cross your fingers.  The San Diego CIF has “Game Day Protocols” ready for schools, teams and officials.  These will be provided to all of us in an effort to guide schools and officials on how to conduct a safe experience from the time we arrive, to the time we depart.  You can expect to answer a list of Covid Questions and have our temperature taken, which is a current practice for all who enter onto a school campus.  And don’t count on any indoor facilities for our use.  We will arrive, go directly to the stadium, officiate the game, and depart.  But we might actually get to work…we’ll see! - Steve
