Pittsboro, NC – Today, Northwood High School athletic director Cameron Vernon released a video outlining the process for spectator check-ins for home volleyball games and cross-county events.
For home volleyball games, due to the state restrictions on indoor attendance levers, Northwood will permit each volleyball player to have two parents attend. Each spectator’s temperature will be checked before entering the gym. An individual’s temperature will need to be under 100.4 degrees.
The individual will be asked a series of questions. If they respond “yes” to any of the questions or fail the temperature check, they will be asked to leave the gym and will not be able to attend that event.
Pairs of parents will be spaced apart by six feet. There are tape marks on the bleacher seats to designate appropriate sitting spots. Yellow caution tape will separate the JV from the Varsity parents. Parents will be asked to sit on the designated spots for proper socially distancing and to also make it easier for staff to properly clean and disinfect the bleacher seating after the games.
Spectators will be required to wear a face mask throughout the sporting event.
Parents will be able to enter the gym through the main entrance. However, after a game they will be asked to proceed through the gym to the other end to exit. After exiting the gym, they will turn left and leave the building through the door and down the outside ramp.
Restrooms will be open and available in the lobby for spectators. The concession stand will not be open.
