In order to minimize indoor gathering sizes and account for potential reductions in staffing, no spectators will be allowed at contests in MCPS facilities through January 16. An update will be provided on or before January 15 regarding future spectator limitations. Note the following:
● For non-MCPS facilities, operations will comply with the procedures and protocols of the host facility and/or jurisdiction.
● There are no limitations for outdoor competitions.
● Gymnasium events will continue to be streamed through the NFHS Network.
