The new proclamation from Governor Reynolds is as follows:
January 8th, 2021 - February 6th, 2021
Section 6 B
Sporting and recreational gatherings: Except for collegiate or professional sporting or recreational gatherings, all sporting and recreational gatherings, including sporting, recreational, and other extracurricular gatherings sponsored by a high school, must comply with the following requirements:
1. Social Distancing Required: The gathering organizer and all spectators must ensure 6 feet of physical distance between each group of spectators.
2. Masks Required: Although athletes or student participants are not required to wear a mask while participating in a gathering, all other participants and spectators over the age of two shall wear a mask or other face covering for all gatherings.

The Governor’s proclamation that now allows tickets for all members of an athletic participant’s household has still led to questions regarding siblings, divorce, grandparents, etc. IGHSAU and IHSAA try to clear up any confusion.
The proclamation language allows for the organizer (host of the event) to allow two tickets for each athlete, participant, performer, etc. unless all ticket holders are from the same household.
If a family has two participants, they get two allotments and are not limited to a household. For example, an athlete participates in basketball and her brother is in the pep band. For one participant, the participant can invite the household; the other gets a maximum of two additional tickets.
If a participant has a divided household (i.e., the parents have joint custody), both halves of the family are part of the participant's household. They are both households for the participant, when viewed from the participant's vantage point.
The host school, as organizer, would be required for ensuring compliance with the language of the proclamation. In the case of an athletic event, the host school coordinates ticket requests for the visiting school.
Q. What is meant by household?
A. A household includes those people who live/reside under the same roof as the player/participant/performer/coach, etc.
Q. Would a student who is living in two households due to a divorce or similar situation be allowed to have both households attend?
A. Yes, the student who is living in two homes would be allowed to have tickets for members of both households.
Q. Can a district issue additional tickets to provide for grandparents or others who previously were approved as one of the two tickets for a student?
A. Districts are only allowed to provide tickets to the members of the household that the athlete, performer, etc. reside under the same roof with OR two tickets. Not both for one athlete.
Q. Do schools have to account for the individuals in the household and track names for the tickets?
A. How each district manages the ticketing process is local control and host schools for athletic events are charged with following the guidance. The intent of allowing members of the household is to increase the number of spectators tied to one individual without substantially increasing the risk of spreading the virus. Two tickets did not cover entire families, nor provide options for divorce situations.
Q. Do the tickets for coaches also include members of his/her household?
A. The two tickets that were previously allowed in all categories-athletes, performers, band members, cheerleaders, dance teams members, coaches, have now been expanded to include all members of the household for that individual.
Q. Do members of the households have to wear masks and social distance?
A. Members of the same household may sit together, but must social distance from other households. Masks are still required. Nothing in the proclamation changed those requirements.
Q. Are schools/conferences required to extend the number of spectators to include members of the household?
A. If schools/conferences wish to continue with the two spectator limit, they may do so as a school/conference.
Q. Do spectators still need to leave after their child has competed, performed, etc.?
A. Yes. The latest proclamation does not change that requirement.
Q. If a family member is away at college and returns for break, is he/she allowed to attend as part of the household?
A. Yes, as long as the college student has his/her primary residence (permanent address) as the family household.
