Does this impact youth sports?

All recreational and youth organized sports tournaments, games, practices and related events may still occur, but attendance is limited to a maximum of two attendees per participant. All physical distancing and mass gathering provisions in the order must be followed. Collegiate sporting events and sporting events governed by Kansas State High School Activities Association and/or school boards are not subject to these provisions but are strongly encouraged to abide by them at a minimum.

Whether athletes need to wear a mask depends upon the activity. Based on the Governor’s mask order, if athletes can maintain a 6-foot distance from others with only infrequent or incidental moments of closer proximity, they would not be required to wear a mask. If athletes would generally not be able to maintain a 6-foot distance from others, they would be required to wear a mask. This doesn’t apply to collegiate sports and sporting events governed by the KSHSAA school boards.
