The leaders of Section 8, in Nassau County on Long Island, decided Wednesday to postpone all high school sports until after Jan. 1.

That decision comes only a couple of days after New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo gave the green light to low-risk high school fall sports to begin practicing and playing come Sept. 21, while only allowing high-risk sports such as football to only begin practicing.

Neighboring Suffolk County (Section 11) is planning to play sports this fall.
