The North Dakota High School Activities Association’s Board of Directors approved regular-season attendance guidelines Wednesday.

The guidelines will follow a tiered system depending on the seating capacity of the venue.

In accordance with the ND Smart Restart Guidelines provided by the state, current orange/high risk levels include:

-- For seating capacity of 3,500 or larger, 25 percent of capacity up to 1,000

-- For seating capacity of 2,001 to 3,499, 25 percent of capacity up to 600

-- For seating capacity of 1,001 to 2,000, 25 percent of capacity up to 300

-- For seating capacity 1,000 or less, 25 percent of capacity up to 150

The attendance totals don’t include athletes, coaches, athletic staff and credentialed event staff.

Social distancing and the use of face coverings will be required by all fans at all times.

Concessions are not recommended in counties in the orange/high risk level.

These guidelines can be changed by member schools or local leaders to be more restrictive.

According to North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, North Dakota prep winter sports practices were allowed to begin Nov. 30, while games are suspended until Dec. 14.
