It’s a high school football Friday, and Cory Giger discusses why many parents aren’t allowed to watch their kids play inside stadiums across the state.
The state recommendation is to cap outdoor sporting events at 250 people. That total includes football players, coaches, band, cheerleaders and media. When you add all those up, it’s often already close to 250, meaning very few fans can attend.
School districts can set their own policies about how to handle attendance, which can allow for some but not all parents to be on hand. While many schools have adhered to the 250 limit, some have ignored it and allowed more fans.
