The NCHSAA gave individual superintendents to decide if they want to resume June 15 or resume at a later date. CMS said the extra time will "enable a safe return."

MECKLENBURG COUNTY, N.C. — The North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) announced Monday that it will lift the current dead period on athletics effective June 15. However, Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools has decided not to resume athletic activities until July 6.

"The additional time will enable CMS to put in place appropriate procedures, train staff, and secure necessary equipment to enable a safe return," CMS said in a statement.
