Mask Requirement Continues at Athletic EventsThe following message from the North Syracuse Central School District Athletic Department is being shared with NSCSD Families and Staff:
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued updated guidance on April 27, specific to mask wearing recommendations for fully vaccinated individuals. While the guidance allows for some lessened requirements, the CDC still recommends that fully vaccinated people wear a mask when attending sporting events or in crowded spaces. The North Syracuse Central School District continues to require spectators at NSCSD events to wear masks. Spectators refusing to wear masks will not be given access to athletic events.
Our goal as an athletic department has not changed. We must remain diligent in our efforts to lower the county-wide transmission rate. To do this, our mask requirement at ALL athletic events for spectators remains in effect and applies to all indoor and outdoor contests. We want to reiterate this expectation and avoid any disruption for spectators who wish to attend in-person. As the Spring season progresses, it is our hope to be able to increase the attendance numbers at these events as long as the mask and social spacing requirements are being met regularly.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and compliance, and for keeping our student-athletes, coaches, and community safe and active!
