From staff reports
The Mifflin County and Juniata County school districts announced their spectator policies for the upcoming winter sports season and both school districts are planning to allow limited capacity crowds, although tickets will not be available to the general public.
Mifflin County High School will not permit public tickets, although athletes of each winter sports team will be given a limited amount of ticket vouchers for home contests. All varsity sports contests will be streamed live on the MCTV YouTube channel. Fans will be required to wear masks and must maintain social distancing guidelines.
Juniata and East Juniata high schools will allow two spectators for every athlete that is rostered, as well as two spectators per coach. The Juniata County School District is requiring all spectators to wear a mask and maintain social distance guidelines within the gymnasium.
Spectators are not allowed within a restricted area behind the team benches and those areas will be marked, according to the Juniata County School District spectator policy. All spectators must refrain from criticism of officials, coaches and athletes and any violations of the policy will result in removal from the premises and the revoking of any privileges to attend home games for the remainder of the season, according to the Juniata County School District policy.
No visiting spectators will be permitted and there will be no admission fees, per Juniata County School District.
