Updates & New Procedures for Pelham Athletics

Updates & New Procedures for Pelham Athletics
Posted on 08/17/2020

The Alabama Department of Public Health notes that a memo issued August 13, 2020 by the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) says spectators will be allowed to attend football games and other athletic events, but attendance likely will be significantly reduced. Under the state’s current Safer at Home public health order:


“Players, coaches, officials, and spectators may not congregate within 6 feet of a person from another household except to the extent necessary, and only to the extent necessary, for players, coaches, and officials to directly participate in the athletic activity. That six-foot distancing rule for spectators likely will significantly reduce attendance at most football stadiums and at many other sports venues."


"Spectators must wear a mask or other facial covering that covers the nostrils and mouth at all times while within 6 feet of a person from another household. Limited exceptions are allowed for people with medical conditions that prevent them from wearing a facial covering."


The AHSAA memo also noted that schools are “strongly encouraged to establish and follow policies for limiting event attendance in order to comply” with the current public health order, and to require fans to wear facial coverings while entering and exiting the gates, while in the stands, and elsewhere. Dr. Harris stressed that the current public health order applies to schools and school-related events."
