The North Dakota High School Activities Association board of directors approved the regular season attendance guidelines on Wednesday.
The guidelines will follow a tiered system depending on the number of seats at the site.
In accordance with state-provided ND smart restart guidelines, current amber / high risk levels include:
– For a capacity of 3,500 seats or more, 25% of the capacity up to 1,000
– For a capacity of 2,001 to 3,499, 25% of the capacity up to 600
– For a capacity of 1001 to 2000, 25% of the capacity up to 300
– For a capacity of 1,000 seats or less, 25 percent of the capacity up to 150
Participation totals do not include athletes, coaches, athletic staff and accredited event staff.
Social distancing and the use of face coverings will be demanded by all fans at all times.
Concessions are not recommended in Amber / High Risk counties.
These guidelines can be changed by member schools or local leaders to be more restrictive.
