The Westchester County Health Department has issued guidance on the state requirements for spectators at school and recreation sports.
The most dramatic change is that student-athletes are now allowed to have two spectators at sporting events, as long as social distancing can still be accomplished and occupancy is still at 50 percent.
Prior to this change, it was only two spectators per player for the home team only.
Spectators must also ensure that their group does not exceed the gathering limit in place for the region.
However, schools and recreation centers still reserve the right to have a stricter interpretation and stricter guidelines.
