Safety precautions for winter sports and activities
Winter sports practices and activities have been happening for the past few weeks. As games and competitions are nearing, the Nebraska School Activities Association and the Governor’s Directed Health Measure outline the following requirements for student, staff, and attendee safety:

Participant households are only being allowed entry, they must sit as a household group at least six foot from other household groups. Attendees must also be on the school list to gain entry. Each school may have a specific limit.

Masks are required, if anyone fails to comply they will be expected to leave.

There may be specific guidance from the host school, it is important that participants and attendees abide by that guidance.

Please respect the host school’s capacity requirements.

If anyone is experiencing any symptoms of illness, please do not attend.

Youth sports and activities are being encouraged to implement precautions as well. It’s important to remember, these safety precautions are critical for the continuity of winter sports and activities.
