ROSEMONT, Ill. (KLKN) — Big news from the Big Ten. The conference will be giving local entities more decision-making power when it comes to COVID-19 safety.

For the rest of the 2020-21 season, attendance policies for Big Ten Conference championships and tournaments will follow local health guidelines and restrictions.

This comes on the heels of the conference’s March 4 announcement that a limited number of fans can attend the 2021 Big Ten Basketball Tournaments.

According to a recent press release, “The goal is to transition from a conference-wide approach to local decision-making.”

More details for each upcoming event will be released over the next few weeks.
