The university’s decision comes a day after the Wolf administration announced professional sports teams can practice and play in “yellow” and “green” phase counties without “on-site or venue spectators” if they have a coronavirus safety plan.
Gov. Tom Wolf’s guidance defines professional sports as “any sporting event at which the participants are paid by a league or team, or at which individuals or teams receive prizes or purse.”
