(KERO) — A settlement has been reached that will allow all youth sports to be played both indoor and outdoor.

The "Let Them Play CA," organization announced Thursday morning a settlement with the state to get student-athletes back on the fields and courts.

The new guidelines, which should be released in full Thursday or Friday, will require weekly testing for student-athletes and a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of a game. The state will provide testing for three contact sports: football, rugby and water polo.
