Friday’s announcement, posted on the district’s website, also contains a stern reminder that at such events masks are required to be worn by everyone except the participating athletes and referees. Anyone refusing to don a mask will be asked to leave, and failure to comply could result in the game being halted.

Here is the full text of the district’s announcement:

“Oakridge athletics will no longer offer concessions at our home events. Further, we are imposing a no-food-or-drink policy in our gym area.

“Fans needing a drink will need to leave the gym area. We will ask that all spectators no longer bring food or drink into the gym area.

“We further are asking that spectators follow the mask mandate, or they will be asked to depart the event. If a spectator is unwilling to follow these expectations the game will be halted until compliance or departure is attained.

“The no-drink policy will not apply to the athletes that are currently on the bench and/or involved in the game being played at that time.

“Athletes in the stands or not currently playing will be expected to follow the no food/drink policy and of course wear a mask. Keep in mind this will be implemented at our away games as well. Thank you for all of your support to keep our kids playing.”
