More Attendance Limits For Sporting Events In Iowa Are Being Lifted
Once sports and events started coming back we saw that they would have attendance limits. Some were a quarter capacity others were half or sometimes higher depending on the location. Almost all had social distancing.
Some locations are now having these limits lifted.
Just last week after the CDC announced that fully vaccinated people can resume all normal activities they did prior to the pandemic, Major and Minor League Baseball announced that fans would no longer be required to wear a mask inside stadiums. This included The River Bandits here in the Quad Cities. They stated,
Under new guidelines from Major League Baseball (MLB), the Quad Cities River Bandits have updated health and safety policies related to fan attendance and have eliminated the “buffer zone” between ballpark seating and the playing surface. Now, every seat in the ballpark can be sold, effective immediately.
It seems as though attendance limits are the next thing to start being lifted. According to KWQC, attendance limits were removed for this week’s Iowa High School State Track & Field Meet.
Following updated public health guidance, attendance limitations have been removed for this week’s Iowa High School State Track & Field meet at Drake Stadium Des Moines.
As of now The three day event will be open to all interested spectators who would like to see this event. It runs Thursday to Saturday. Tickets are on sale now.
It appears that this trend will most likely carry into other outdoors sports events this Summer.
