Schools will have to limit fans of fall school sports attending games to 50% of capacity, according to guidelines released by the UIL this week.
The guidelines say that groups of spectators should maintain at least six feet of distance from other groups at all times, including the process of admission and seating. A group is defined as no more than 10 people including the members of the household and those persons who traveled together to the facility. Schools should not allow seating in consecutive rows, and should block off seating to maintain a minimum six feet of distance between groups.
Spectators, audiences, fans and media are required to wear face coverings as described in Executive Order GA-29.
Student groups such as marching bands, cheerleaders, drill teams, and other groups approved by the school district may attend and perform at games or contests in which they are not competing. The UIL recommends that schools should consider limiting the number of participants to those essential to the performance. Student groups are also required to wear face coverings as described in Executive Order GA-29.
