TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — The Arizona Interscholastic Association's board voted Tuesday to allow more fans to go to winter season games.

It is advised that each district follow up with their local health officials to decide how many fans can attend the games, according to the AIA. During the meeting, it was also voted to continue to mandate masks through the winter season, which include the playoffs.

In March, the AIA board will discuss if the mask mandate will continue into the spring season.

“Even though the (COVID-19) numbers are going down, they are still high (compared) to the beginning of the fall season,” AIA Executive Director Hines said. “So we are hoping people are very reasonable to allow a few more people in their stands. But to open up completely would be not a good choice and not helpful to the community or the state of Arizona.”
