“We are pleased to be able to offer family members and friends the opportunity to see these excellent student-athletes perform, and to always have protocols in place to help protect everyone’s health and safety,” said Director of Education JoAnna Roberto said in a press release.

The plan, which goes into effect on November 8, will see two tickets provided to each student-athlete.

People attending events with the ticket must be double vaccinated, wear masks and be seated at least two meters away from all people outside their homes.

Tickets will be signed and dated by the coach of each team.

The board noted that its plan could change based on COVID-19 numbers.

Earlier this week, the Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board announced plans to allow fans to attend high school indoor sporting events.

The move comes as some teams from the Athletic Association of Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk have started the playoffs, while others will do so next week.

The AABHN District 5 basketball playoffs begin Nov. 8 with the quarterfinals. The semi-finals will be played on November 11 and the finals will follow on November 15.

The District 5 volleyball quarter-finals will be on November 8 and the semi-finals on November 11. The championship games will take place on November 16.
