MIAMI (CBSMiami) – All after-school sporting activities are now cancelled for South Florida catholic schools, according to the Archdiocese of Miami.
The Archdiocese is cancelling the events as a precautionary effort in the fight against coronavirus for the next few weeks.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools and Broward County Public Schools are not making any cancellations but also say that meetings continue to take place so that may change.
Catholics have already altered their worship practices because of concern over COVID-19. Priests are asking worshippers not to shake hands at the Sign of Peace and not to hold hands during certain prayers.
