CLAYTON, Mo. — St. Louis County residents continue to protest limits on high school sports enacted because of the coronavirus.

Hundreds protested Monday in Clayton, holding signs that read, "Let us play!"

County Executive Sam Page last week allowed low-contact youth sports like golf and tennis to restart. High-contact sports, including football, still are banned.

Protesters also have been marching outside Page's home.
