Athletics to proceed

Jasper athletics will continue on following the Indiana State Department of Health designating Dubois County in the "Red" of the COVID-19 Indiana County Guidelines on Wednesday.

The high school athletic department released a statement on Wednesday that patrons should expect attendance to be restricted at events dependent upon this designation and in collaboration with the Dubois County Health Department.

Jasper also said an updated attendance plan has been submitted to the health department for events with more than 250 people. The department said in its statement that it will update people as much as they can during this fluid situation.

People can check and/or Twitter for any updates.

Southridge athletics also released a similar statement, and added that the 7:30 p.m. football sectional championship on Friday vs. Salem is still a go. They, too, will submit a facility plan for approval. Southridge asks people check for updates.

However, Southridge's scheduled girls basketball game against Paoli was cancelled on Saturday. The Rams were set to play Northeast Dubois today, but that, too, has been cancelled.

Forest Park girls basketball coach Tony Hasenour texted the Herald on Wednesday that today's season opener at home against Tell City was still on.
