(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Midland Empire Conference has made changes to the fan guidelines for winter sports.

  • Attendance will be limited to 2 family members per participant. Both home and visiting schools will have a pass list for each participant at the gate. Individual students will not be admitted unless they are family members on the pass list.
  • Fans (including any family members that are students) will be expected to sit with their families and maintain social distancing from other fans. There will not be student sections.
  • Face coverings will be required at all events for anyone not actively participating in the contest. This includes coaches and players on the bench.
  • Wrestling tournaments will not have spectators due to space limitations with multiple teams. Non-tournaments will follow regular guidelines.
  • Dance teams will be allowed to perform and attend the home events and up to 2 family members will be admitted as well. Dance teams and spectators should only attend during performances and exit after the performance. There will not be pep bands.
  • Cheerleaders will be allowed at home events and will be allowed 2 family members per participant.

In a release, the MEC Board of Control is trying to take as many precautions as possible to continue to provide opportunities for students.
