With the state’s new gathering guidance, the Warren County School District released a district-wide plan for spectators at sporting events.
A memo sent to building administration throughout the Warren County School District details the new guidelines.
The new guidance, which goes into effect Friday, Oct. 9, is a three-tiered system that allows gatherings, both indoor and outdoor, up to a certain percentage of capacity. The percentage varies based on the venue’s total capacity.
For WCSD, those are as follows for each school:
Indoor/gym occupancy is 20% of the seating capacity. We are going with the numbers Building and Grounds have calculated for us. The number bolded/underlined below is your new max capacity for indoor events and that includes players, coaches, officials, game personnel, and fans.
The release also addressed the issuing of tickets, as well as social-distancing guidelines.
- Please continue to give out tickets in advance to Middle School Girl’s Basketball, Volleyball, and Varsity Football. Varsity Football games at WAHS and EMHS will be run just like the previous home game.
- No need to hand out tickets in advance for Boys/Girls Soccer, JV and Middle School Football, Cross Country, and Tennis because they will not come close to the max number based on past attendance.
- Please take care of the home fans first and if you have tickets available you can offer them to the visiting fans. This will vary based on the venue.
- Face masks and social distancing requirements still apply and will be enforced. All people in attendance must sign in with name and cell / phone number.
