Health Screening Before Entry
All spectators for Guilderland home contests must complete our health screening before entering the facility. Event chaperones will have a hard copy screening available for spectators at the entrance table. Additionally, we will have a QR code at the facility that spectators can complete with their cell phones.
Six Feet of Physical Distance and Face Coverings Required
As per NYSDOH guidance, spectators must maintain six feet of physical distance between individuals and/or family/household units at all times and all spectators must wear face coverings when they are in common areas and situations where six feet of distancing is not able to be maintained, so as long as they are over the age of two and medically able to tolerate such covering.
Suburban Council schools Guidelines
All other Suburban Council schools Guidelines will have very similar guidelines, however, it is best to check each school’s homepage on Schedule Galaxy for exact guidelines.
