NY raises spectator limits at sporting events​​

For spring sports, New York has raised the attendance limit to 500 people (counting athletes, coaches, officials, and spectators).

Effective immediately, Central Valley will remove the two-person-per-athlete limit. If the venue reaches capacity, school officials will not allow additional spectators.

Masks still required

A message to our spectators:

Herkimer County Athletic Families & Fans,

We are aware of the new CDC guidelines that were released April 27, specific to masking recommendations for fully-vaccinated individuals.

Our goal as an athletic department has not changed. We must remain diligent in our efforts to lower the countywide transmission rate in order to return all students to more in-person instruction as quickly as possible. To do this, our mask requirements at all athletic events for spectators remains in effect and applies to all indoor and outdoor contests. We want to reiterate this expectation and avoid any disruption for spectators who wish to attend in-person.

It is important to note, the CDC still recommends that fully vaccinated people should wear masks when attending sporting events. Spectators refusing to wear masks will not be given access, and will be encouraged to watch contests virtually through our livestreams.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and compliance, and keeping our student athletes, coaches and community safe and active.
