The majority of the Western Maine Conference high schools will allow
both home and away spectators for spring 2021 events.
Each school’s own 
Spectator Protocols have three common themes:

•    Masks required at all times at all events
•    6 foot distancing is required at all events, unless you live in the same household
•    Pre contest Covid 19 self-screen is required by all

If spectators are not able to comply with these requirements
please do not attend or you will be asked to leave.

At this time, the only WMC school NOT allowing visiting spectators is NYA

 

 

The Freeport Athletic Department must ensure that the guidelines for holding events are met. Any action taken by spectators that jeopardize the ability for the Athletic Department to follow these guidelines will result in the removal of spectators from home events.

This is a working document and as we continue to gain more information these Protocols may be adjusted, revised, or adapted to the ever-changing environment.
