TOWER CITY • Williams Valley is the latest Sentinel-area school district to set a policy on spectator attendance at fall interscholastic sports events. The school board, Sept. 24, approved the following plan:
• For home football events, Viking Stadium will accept up to 225 home and 283 visiting spectators – one third its normal operating capacity. Attendance will be first come, first served. Each member of the football team, cheerleaders and band will receive two vouchers. Each voucher will allow the purchase of admission for the game.
• For home boys’ and girls’ soccer matches, Viking Stadium will allow a total of 508 spectators – one-third its normal operating capacity – regardless of home or visitor status.
• For home high school volleyball and junior high girls’ basketball events, each home team member will receive two vouchers. Each voucher will allow the purchase of admission for the game.
• For volleyball and basketball events, spectators are required to wear a mask inside the gymnasium and stay inside the gymnasium. In addition, spectators may not sit within the vicinity of players. Spectators who refuse to wear masks may not attend the event; play will be suspended until any spectator refusing to wear a mask leaves the event.
• Also for volleyball and basketball events, spectators ‘‘should do their best’’ to sit 6 feet apart, except if they live in the same house.
• Booster groups may operate concession stands to feed home teams and their staffs. Stands will not be open to the public.
