Vince Hal, cashier at Alameda Natural Grocery, sprays disinfectant onto shopping baskets and carts.

They are also required to wear face coverings while inside.

On Friday, April 3, the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) announced the cancellation of the 2020 high school sports spring season. 

The cancellation was due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has canceled or postponed sporting events around the world. The announcement means the end of the 2020 baseball, softball, men’s golf, men’s tennis, men’s volleyball, swimming and track-and-field seasons for Alameda high school teams. 

The COVID-19 health crisis has not only affected Alameda high-school sports teams in the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF), it has also affected teams at the club sport level.
