Whitmer: Mask order applies to Big Ten, but may be changed

LANSING, Mich (AP) Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's office said Thursday her requirement that athletes wear masks applies to Big Ten football in Michigan, but a face shield will suffice for players and the administration is open to potentially changing the order.

Her administration said it will talk to the conference about the mandate, which covers organized sports in which athletes cannot keep distance "except for occasional and fleeting moments." The state measure exempts professional sports and amateur sports like tennis, golf, cross country, baseball and softball.

The Big Ten announced Wednesday it plans to open its football season the weekend of Oct. 23-24, reversing a decision to push fall sports to the spring in the name of player safety during the coronavirus pandemic.
