The Fort Dodge Community School District is putting in place covid-19 protocols for Friday’s game as Fort Dodge hosts Ankeny. The protocols are the same guidelines issued by the CIML and Friday’s game is a CIML match up. The FDCSD released the guidelines on Thursday Morning. Below is the statement they issued concerning the guidelines.
Dodger Football Fans – In an effort to keep everyone healthy and safe, we will be following the CIML guidelines for this Friday’s home football game. Face coverings will be required to be worn by all spectators while inside Dodger Stadium. In addition, attendance will be limited to 2000 people. Each student participant (football, band, cheer, color guard and dance) will receive 3 vouchers. Individuals should bring their voucher to the game where it can be exchanged for admission with an activity ticket or by purchasing a game ticket. There will also be 1100 vouchers available for the general public. These vouchers will need to be picked up from the main west entrance of Senior High from 1:00 – 3:30 today and 8:00-11:00 on Friday or until they are gone. They will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Only individuals with a voucher will be allowed admission to Friday’s game. Walk up ticket sales will not be available. Fans will be expected to social distance in the stands, and some bleachers will be marked off as unavailable to assist with this. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we work to keep our students, staff and families safe and healthy.
The District said Thursday that they plan to follow the above guidelines for the remaining home games of the season. However, further restrictions could be added depending on the public health landscape going forward.
