PASCO COUNTY, Fla. – Pasco County Schools have revised the November 23rd policy to ban spectators at sporting events and school performances.

Pasco County School Superintendent Kurt Browning discussed the district’s strategy for reducing the possibility of the spread of COVID-19 at extracurricular events. Events and sports were to be allowed to continue as planned, but without spectators. This included; music, sports, theatrical.

On Monday the district revised the policy and said, “After consultation with local health officials and in an effort to find a compromise to allow spectators at sporting events and audiences at fine arts performances, the following revised guidelines regarding spectators at extracurricular and co-curricular activities will be in place effective Tuesday, December 1, 2020.”

The revised policy is:

• No more than two (2) individuals per any student participating in the co-curricular or extracurricular activity will be allowed to watch the event in person.

• Strict social distancing will be observed and enforced.• Strict guidelines will be enforced requiring masks to be worn at all times during indoor events. At outdoor events, masks must be worn when entering the event, and the masks may be removed when seated.

The schools say that individuals not complying with these guidelines will be required to leave the event.
