TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Face coverings will be required at Texas stadiums this fall, and capacity will be limited to 50 percent if proper spacing between people is maintained, according to new UIL guidelines released Tuesday.

Marching bands, drill teams and others participating in the event will count toward capacity.

Every other row of seats must be skipped, and seating must be blocked off to maintain a minimum of 6-feet between groups, according to the UIL guidelines.

The guidelines encourage online ticket sales, with programs and paper tickets limited to help avoid the spread of COVID-19. Hand sanitizing and/or hand washing stations must be provided at entrances and inside the facility.

Set times for arrival are also encouraged, with groups limited to 10 people. Six feet of space must be maintained between those groups, and face coverings must be worn by spectators, audiences, fans, and anyone working or volunteering in a concession stand to comply with Gov. Greg Abbott’s Executive Order GA-29.

Concession stands should avoid leaving condiments, silverware, and other tabletop items out, and offer individually wrapped condiments or flatware only upon request. Dining areas must be cleaned and disinfected after each patron departs.

Seating, handrails, and common areas must be disinfected before each use of the stadium, and walkways must be clear and unobstructed.

KLTV & KTRE Sports and Investigations departments teamed up with texasbob.com to create a comprehensive list of the estimated capacity for each East Texas stadium.

These are estimates only, and each district will determine their own capacity level.
