WCSD: Masks Required for Spectators at Indoor Events


RUSSELL, Pa. – The Warren County School District announced Thursday that, effective immediately, spectators will be required to wear masks at all indoor events.

Students will be required to wear a face covering unless they have an exemption based on a 504 plan or IEP. All other spectators will need to wear a mask.

“Spectators refusing to wear an approved face covering will be denied admission to the event,” the district said.

The penalty for non-compliance could be steep.

“No event will start until all spectators comply with masking requirements,” the district said. “If an event has started and a spectator fails to comply with masking requirements, the event will be paused until masking takes place or that person or persons have left the facility.

“If, after pausing, spectators continue to disregard mask requirements, the event may be discontinued.”
