Current regulations prohibit any spectators at any contest. There shall be no spectators on any public or school property during interscholastic competitions. Sports-related activities at all levels are limited to student athletes, coaches, officials and staff only. Athletic contests will be halted if there are spectators in areas that can be controlled. Forfeits will be awarded if necessary to adhere to the gathering limitations set forth by the governor.
