 Dear Official,

I'm sending this to all clinicians, assignors and association leaders.
Our original Officials Guidance document for the 2020-21 school year said that electronic whistles are required.  That was before some manufacturers developed whistle covers or pouches that attach directly to a traditional whistle.
These whistle covers/pouches prevent the spread of respiratory droplets yet allow officials to use a regular whistle that produces a regular whistle sound.
See the IHSA Officials Guidance document on the IHSA website for September 11, 2020 update, that now allows officials the option of using a traditional whistle with a solid black cover/pouch or an electronic whistle.
