Limited spectators now welcome for Grand Erie indoor secondary sports


Grand Erie has updated its secondary sports protocol to welcome a limited number of spectators for indoor sports. This change, made in consultation with local public health units and other stakeholders, comes as playoff games for some competitions are imminent.

“We’re happy to be able to provide family members and friends an opportunity to see these excellent student-athletes perform, and still have protocols in place to help protect everyone’s health and safety,” said Grand Erie Director of Education JoAnna Roberto.

According to the new protocol, which comes into effect on Monday, November 8, spectators at indoor sports must:

  • have an appropriately signed and dated paper ticket issued by the school through the athletes
  • be double vaccinated
  • wear a mask or face covering in a manner that covers their mouth, nose and chin and,
  • be seated at least two metres from every person outside their household.

Two paper tickets will be provided to each athlete using a template provided to each school.  These will be signed and dated by the coach of each team and used for admission into the venue.

Earlier this school year, Grand Erie released protocols for spectators for outdoor sports, keeping safety top of mind as school sports resumed.
