Based on Gov. Roy Cooper’s Executive Order 195 and revised guidance issued by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, Durham Public Schools will now allow a limited number of spectators to cheer on their student-athletes.

Beginning Friday, March 12, 2021, DPS student-athletes will be allowed two guests per contest, for home games only. Guests will be required to purchase tickets online prior to the event. Upon entry, guests will have their temperatures checked, be required to answer health screening questions, and provide identification for contact tracing purposes. Wearing face coverings and maintaining adequate social distancing (six feet of distance between family units) at all times will be required.

“We are excited to allow our student-athletes to compete in front of their families again,” said Dr. Pascal Mubenga, DPS Superintendent. “We are being cautious as we bring spectators back to our games. The health and safety of our athletes, staff, and guests are still our highest priority.”

Streaming options for athletic events are still available for those unable to attend in person.
