This comes after St. Louis County released new guidelines on Sept. 11, which prohibited games

ST. CHARLES COUNTY, Mo. — A private school in St. Louis County traveled to St. Charles County to play in a softball game on Tuesday.

It’s the first game of the season for Incarnate Word’s softball team.

The team was invited to play against Lutheran High School in St. Charles County at Alice Achelpohl Field.

Parents were also able to watch from the stands. There are no restrictions on sports in St. Charles County.

This comes after St. Louis County released new guidelines on Sept. 11, which prohibited games, tournaments, competitions and showcases for athletes 14 and older. Spectators are also banned in St. Louis County. Team workouts and full team practices are allowed.

Page has defended his decision on the new guidelines. The positivity rate for teens ages 15-19 is five times higher than the rate for kids younger than 10, according to St. Louis County’s coronavirus data.  

“Following the advice of our experts here in St. Louis County, we have different demographics, different conditions, and we have a very alarming positivity rate, 15 to 19 year olds. And that’s why we made those decisions,” Page said during a briefing on Sept. 11.
