TENNESSEE (WATE) — On Tuesday afternoon, Gov. Bill Lee issued Executive Order No. 55 to allow contact sports to resume, as long as they follow requirements from TSSAA.

Non-TSSAA schools will be following equivalent guidelines, and nonschool-sponsored athletics are encouraged to follow the Tennessee Pledge guidelines.

Gov. Lee says that an update to those guidelines will be forthcoming.
