Go figure Pennsylvania!

News quote from the Tribune Review from Nov 19, 2020:

The situation will become more complicated Friday, Nov 20, 2020, when winter sports are scheduled to start practice. For instance, must swimmers wear a mask in the pool?
That’s unclear under the mandate, so the PIAA is seeking guidance from the health department on that question and others.
“We’ve got a serious issue when it comes to swimming,” PIAA associate executive director Melissa Mertz said. “We’re definitely going to push for some clarification. I’m not sure all of the sports were thought out when that (mandate) was put in there.”

Some things are too hard to make up.
