Prepping to play

The Gloversville Dragons were among the teams in Fulton County that were able to start practicing Tuesday under the COVID-19 protocols.

In order for high-risk sports to start, the Fulton County Public Health Department requires the county’s seven-day rolling average percent positivity (as calculated by NYSDOH) be at or below 4 percent. If that number is above 4 percent, DOH guidelines say that “activities must be restricted to individual or distanced group training or organized no/low-contact group training.”
