Section X to Eliminate Mask Rules

Section X to eliminate mask rules

Section X Athletics will no longer require masks at outdoor athletic events.

Now that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has released official guidance that gives schools the option to allow staff and students to not wear masks while outside, all of the school districts within Section X have adopted those new rules for the last few weeks of school. 

Therefore, mask requirements will be dropped for all athletes, coaches, officials, event personnel and spectators at outdoor Section X events. 

There will also no longer be a two-spectator limit per athlete. Where Section X previously required athletes to provide names of spectators ahead of games, there will no longer be a need for a gate list. 

Everyone is still encouraged to maintain 6 feet of distance from people outside of their household. 

School districts will still need to follow rules for capacity limits at events.
