Updated Spectator Procedures for Indoor Events
Dr. Seth Miller
Wednesday, March 24, 2021

The Illinois Department of Public Health has updated their guidelines that will allow for expanded spectator capacity for indoor events at Westville School District.  Please see below how the district will respond to these new increased capacities.

 

High School Indoor Events

Events held at WHS will have provisions in place so that each student-athlete may allocate up to six tickets for spectators to attend indoor events.  Students can select different spectators for each game.  Players will make arrangements with their coaches and building administrators to create a pass list for each home event.  All home spectators on the Westville pass list will be seated and socially distanced on the east bleachers.


Additionally, each visiting school player will be allowed to invite two spectators to attend indoor events.  Opposing schools will work with Westville administration and athletic department to create a pass list for visiting spectators.  All visiting spectators will be seated and socially distanced on the west bleachers.

 


Junior High School Indoor Events

Events held at WJHS will have provisions in place so that each student-athlete may allocate two spectators to attend indoor events.  Students can select different spectators for each game.  Players will make arrangements with their coaches and building administrators to create a pass list for each home event.  All home spectators on the Westville pass list will be seated and socially distanced on the east side of the bleachers.


Additionally, each visiting school player will be allowed to invite two spectators to attend indoor events.  Opposing schools will work with Westville administration and athletic department to create a pass list for visiting spectators.  All visiting spectators will be seated and socially distanced on the west bleachers.

 


 

Spectator Guidelines for Home Events at Westville School District

The following guidelines will be used for all home events for spectators who are invited by a participating student.

  • Only guests invited by a participating student will be allowed to attend.
  • Masks are mandatory for all spectators and must be worn while inside school buildings
  • Spectators should maintain six feet of social distancing to the extent possible while inside the building.  Individuals from the same household may sit together as a group.
  • Spectators who are experiencing any of the following symptoms must not enter the school building: fever, cough, sore throat, headache, lost of taste/smell, difficulty breathing, chills, vomiting
  • Spectators will have their temperature taken upon arrival to the school building and individuals with a temperature above 100.4 degrees will not be permitted to enter the school building.
  • There will be no cost for admission to games.
  • There will be no concession stand food and beverages provided during games.

 


 

Westville Spectators Attending Away Events

Currently there is not a standard policy all opposing schools are using in regards to allowing visiting spectators (due to different gym sizes and seating capacities).  It is likely that more schools will have ways that will allow for visiting spectators to attend as the season progresses.  The athletic directors and coaches will work to keep players and families updated about the process each school will use to accommodate visiting spectators as we receive more information from each school on upcoming events.
