Changing mask procedures at sporting events

Ruby Hollis, Staff Writer

MHSAA has announced that starting on Oct. 9 high school sporting events will be allowed to have more spectators. Originally each player was only allowed to have two spectators per game but Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order allowing indoor sporting events to have up to 20 percent of its capacity. And allowing outdoor events to have up to 30 percent of their capacity. Not every school will allow this many spectators and may decide to allow fewer spectators. The competing teams are required to split the number of tickets evenly. Social distancing rules are still enforced for the spectators and masks must be worn.
