INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana High School Athletic Association has revealed COVID-19 guidelines for all schools that will participate in fall sports, including the restrictions on fans.
The IHSAA says fans will be allowed to attend events this fall, but each set of bleachers will be capped at 50% capacity or 250 people, whichever comes first.
Families will be able to sit together but must be six feet away from another family.
In the end though, the IHSAA says each school may still enforce its own stricter guidelines if their county sees fit. For example, all three schools in Adams County announced Monday that the general public will not be allowed to attend events this fall. Only four family members of each high school senior on the team will be permitted.
The IHSAA guidelines also mentioned that student-athletes who remain on the sidelines should wear a mask.
If a school must cancel a contest because of coronavirus, it will not be considered a “forfeit” but rather a “no contest.”
For guidelines designed specifically for an individual sport, the IHSAA is suggesting schools and teams follow what the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) says.
