Nassau County has postponed all high school sports until 2021.

Nassau school superintendents voted unanimously in an emergency meeting this morning to weigh the dangers of COVID-19 transmission in fall and winter seasons.

Suffolk County held a similar vote, but voted to continue the statewide plan to have lower-risk sports begin practice in September.

Higher-risk sports like football will be prohibited.
