Complaints on wrestling suspension prompt Clark County Board of Health meeting

Dozens of residents who called in to Friday’s Clark County Council meeting have prompted a special meeting of the Board of Health to be held Tuesday.

Although the Dec. 17 public hearing was to be a forum for comments on a proposed fireworks ordinance, callers instead were upset by Public Health’s recommendation that public schools should suspend wrestling competition, practice and travel after more than 30 COVID-19 cases were detected among local wrestlers. The suspension is in effect until Jan. 3.
