This just in from the NEIC conference:
Superintendents, activity directors, and student athletes in the Northeast Iowa Conference are uniting this winter with one clear message for their fans, “Wear a face covering.”
In a 7-0 vote, leadership with the Northeast Iowa Conference are requiring fans to wear a face covering at indoor sporting events. Face coverings need to be worn as fans enter the building and remain on while indoors. The NEIC will enforce this procedure during basketball, wrestling, and bowling season.
Details on face covering enforcement
– Applies to all fans of indoor contests in conference and non-conference match-ups – Applies for all high school and middle school contests
– Must wear a face covering to enter the gymnasium
– Face coverings must cover your nose and mouth
– Face coverings should be worn the entire time a fan is in the building
– Fans who do not wear a face covering may be asked to leave
This type of procedure is happening all over the state. Over at the Iowa State Dance competition, masks are required and fans are being limited.
