Chilton County Schools has announced that indoor sports have been reduced to 20% of the usual audience at the recommendation of the AHSAA and Dr. Scott Harris, State Health Officer, Alabama Department of Public Health.
“The directive is not a school or school system decision, but we support the efforts of the AHSAA to keep everyone safe and healthy,” CCS Superintendent Jason Griffin said. “Chilton County Schools will adhere to these guidelines and schools will be providing information as to how it affects their schools within the next few days.”
Griffin said individual schools will enforce this with similar measures to when indoor games were at 50%.
“Each school will make some modifications,” Griffin said.
Tickets must be purchased in advance. Those unsure of how to purchase tickets for a game should contact the individual school’s office.
Additional recommendations from the AHSAA and Dr. Scott Harris include having players sanitizing their hands after leaving the court and “players, their families, and their coaches to refrain from organizing non-sport related social activities which increase the risk for transmission and may jeopardize sport participation,” according to the AHSAA announcement.
