Over 1,000 high school football games have been played across the United States without a significant spread of Covid-19, according to athletic news.
Many states chose to allow high school football games despite critics worrying that it would lead to spikes of Covid-19, but that hasn’t been the case at all.
“To our knowledge, there have been no reported cases of significant community spread following a high school football game,” according to Football Scoop. “High schools in the state of Utah have been playing for 4+ weeks now. Alabama, Indiana, Tennessee and Alaska have all been playing for 3+ weeks. A significant number of states have now been playing for 2+ weeks.”
“Data shows there has not been a significant spike in COVID cases in any of the states that have been playing football for the last 2-4 weeks.”
Now before you think that this can be attributed to mandatory mask wearing at high school games, keep in mind that several California cities had mandatory mask mandates in place BEFORE reporting their peak case numbers:
In today's “masks don't work” segment…LA, Orange & San Diego Counties all had different mask timing. Orange even tried to follow science & rescinded the mandate briefly
And yet, the curve was the same, & the 7-day average peaked on almost the exact same day

Also, keep in mind that each school district has its own Covid-19 rules, meaning that, occasionally, there’s going to be a mishmash of contradictory rules when two teams are playing in the same stadium – and there’s of course the fact that most players aren’t wearing masks on the field and they’re certainly not social distancing.
Despite that, there’s been no reported resurgence of Covid-19 from high school games, although, at this point, we shouldn’t be looking at total case numbers but rather the number of severe cases and the mortality rates.
As Sky News host Alan Jones pointed out, the vast majority of cases have been mild, leading some to say, sarcastically, that Covid-19 is a virus “so severe that many don’t know they’ve have it until they’re tested.”
Yet there’s still politicians demanding that Americans vote by mail, exposing the election to mass voter fraud.
