LPS spring sports spectator update

Are you planning on checking out any youth sports this spring? Be sure to double-check that you know the protocols.

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)- After the update to the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department’s Directed Health Measures, Lincoln Public Schools is also making some changes to their protocols for spring sports spectators. These will be effective starting Friday, April 23.

  • All competition sites are open to 75 percent capacity for general admission. The limit of a certain number of spectators per athlete has been removed. As per the DHM, once 75 percent capacity of the venue is reached, no additional spectators will be allowed admission into the event. Admission will be open to anyone on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • All spectators must self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms prior to attending any event. If you answer yes to any of the screening questions, please stay home.
  • All spectators must wear multi-layered face coverings over the mouth and nose the entire time they are at the event.
  • Limited concessions may be sold. Individuals may lower their mask to take a bite or drink, but must promptly return the face-covering over the mouth and nose in between bites and drinks. No outside food or drink by spectators will be allowed.
  • Spectators are asked to maintain as much physical distance as possible between groups.
