Carson City School District announced Friday afternoon in a press release that it will allow visiting fans at athletic events for spring sports contests.
All spectators will be admitted to sporting events on a first-come first-serve basis, continued the CCSD press release.
Through the end of April, no more than 250 people can gather for an outdoor event.
“Our top priority for sporting events at Carson High continues to be safety and conducting athletic events for our Spring Sport athletes, and especially where parents and families can watch them compete,” said Carson High athletic director Blair Roman. “We would like to thank parents and families at CHS for their continued support and adherence to these guidelines to ensure all our student athletes may continue to compete.”
Guidelines have also changed around player testing.
Previously, athletes were required to be tested weekly under NIAA guidelines.
Now, spring sport athletes are not required to test unless the participant is symptomatic.
Masks are still required to be worn at all times and social distancing still remains in effect for the entire duration of events.
The school district said it plans to reevaluate its policy May 1, when decision-making authority returns to local governments.
