Wednesday morning, Carson City School District released its athletic attendance policy for the upcoming six-week slate of fall sports.
CCSD announced that 100 fans would be allowed at the first games of the season, with the number increasing to 250 after March 14.
Public gatherings and events will be capped at 250 people or 50 percent of the fire code capacity once Phase 2 begins March 15.
“Our top priority right now at Carson High is to safely roll out fall sports contests for our athletes and support groups like cheer, band and ROTC following required NIAA guidelines,” said Carson High athletic director Blair Roman. “Carson High School would like to thank parents and families at CHS for their continued support.”
CCSD’s statement went on to lay out who would get access to said tickets to attend live events.
“Each qualifying participant of a fall sport will be given two tickets one day prior to their contest to distribute to parents, family, guardians or close friends of their choice. The ticket will be the only way to enter an athletic contest. … All spectators who have a proper ticket to gain admittance to an athletic contest will be health screened prior to entrance. No exchange of money will take place this season, all entrance is FREE.”
Masks will be required to be worn at all times by spectators at indoor and outdoor events and social distancing will be in effect for the entire duration of each contest.
CCSD also advised spectators to leave the premises immediately following the conclusion of a contest and wait for their child at their vehicle.
Roman also stated that across the 5A region, visiting attendance would not be allowed.
"The capacity limits are too low to allow for it, and our own spectators' priority," said Roman.
The statement went on to that attendance guidelines would be reevaluated prior to the beginning of the spring sports season.
Official spring practices are allowed to begin April 3.
