Pearl River athletics announces attendance revisions
POPLARVILLE, Miss. — Pearl River has reviewed Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves’ latest Executive Order as it pertains to athletic events and has decided to adjust its Spring 2021 attendance policy.
“We believe we have found an essential balance between adjusting our policy and keeping the health and safety of our student athletes, coaches, staff and fans at the forefront of our decision,” Pearl River Athletics Director and Women’s Basketball Coach Scotty Fletcher said.
“Pearl River is in constant contact with state and local officials to ensure we’re doing what’s best for all involved.”
Beginning Wednesday, March 3, capacity guidelines will be lifted for outdoor venues, including Dub Herring Park, Wildcat Stadium and the Pearl River Soccer Complex.
Additionally, attendance at Marvin R. White Coliseum and Shivers Gymnasium will be increased to 50 percent.
Admission for those games will be granted on a first come, first serve basis until capacity is reached.
While capacity has been increased, Pearl River still encourages all guests to maintain social distancing and wear face coverings (over the nose and mouth). Hand sanitizing stations are also provided throughout PRCC’s facilities.
All fans and employees attending games must conduct self-screening prior to leaving home; this process includes reviewing for possible symptoms and checking your temperature. Anyone who exhibits possible COVID-19 symptoms should stay home.
Pearl River has also implemented heightened cleaning and sanitation protocols throughout its facilities.
Signage reminding fans of best practices and requirements will remain visible at PRCC’s facilities.
