High School fall sports, including football, are starting across the great state of Tennessee this week.  Some teams opened play Thursday evening, while others are playing a more traditional Friday Night Lights game, and some will play on Saturday.

With football opening in the midst of a the global COVID-19 pandemic there are many new regulations at the games.

All who attend the games will get their temperature scanned.  Most teams are selling tickets in advance only, and they must be bought on-line.  

Masks must be worn at all times.  Seating in the stands is set so that people are “socially distant” and fans are asked to stay in their seats unless making a trip to the concession stand or the restroom.

You will see cheerleaders and band members in masks.

Let’s hope this controls any problems, and that the sports season can continue.
