JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) – Northeast Tennessee high school athletic directors met Thursday to develop a set of safety guidelines for area schools to follow.

The majority of Tri-Cities high schools were present at the meeting, including Greeneville, Science Hill, Daniel Boone, Sullivan Central and South, Unicoi Co. to name a few.

These athletic directors are intending to collaborate so they can use the same safety guidelines for each school and keep things universal. COVID-19 procedures, ticket sales and transportation were just a few topics discussed.

These guidelines are expected to be delivered to school superintendents Friday, with a decision coming Monday during the superintendents meeting.
