For example, the amount of people at a match is limited. MHSAA says, “For attendance purposes, schools in Regions 6 and 8 may have for indoor volleyball a total of 250 people or 25 percent of a facility’s capacity, whichever is smallest. Indoor pools in Regions 6 and 8 are limited to 25 percent of established bather capacity for that pool. Outdoor competition in Regions 6 and 8 may have 500 people or 25 percent of capacity, whichever is smallest. For all three sports, the total numbers of people allowed to be present include all participants, officials and school and game personnel, media and fans.”
There are also different zones in Michigan to where certain sports are allowed. For right now, people in zones 6 and 8 are allowed to continue sports as normal, but all the others are on hold.
