The high school wrestling season resumed after a suspension earlier this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Homer High School athletic director Chris Perk, COVID-19 safety practices for athletes include wearing masks during practices and COVID-19 rapid testing twice a week. At meets, athletes may compete without masks. The number of visitors per athlete vary according to school.
