In addition to this state guidance, schools, universities, amateur, and professional sports organizations also must also follow any additional health guidance rules for the prevention of COVID-19 from their governing bodies that is more restrictive than this minimum health guidance. Independent youth sports organizations also must follow sport-specific guidance from the Ohio High School Athletic Association. The primary purpose of permitting spectators is to allow and encourage the family members and loved ones of players, coaches, team staff members, officials, and other event participants (band, honor guard, etc.) to observe and share in the experience.
