Press Release for CMS Basketball Home Game

Middle School Basketball Patrons, please note the following requirements for Middle School basketball
home games:

● All guests will be required to wear a face covering while at the event. You will not be allowed to
enter without a face covering.

Executive Order GA-29, regarding face coverings, applies to all UIL activities effective July 3, 2020. This
includes the 2020-2021 school year. As the public health situation changes, and/or if subsequent
Executive Orders are issued by Governor Greg Abbott, these guidelines may be further modified.
Exceptions to the wearing of face coverings or face shields include:

● Any person with a medical condition or disability that prevents wearing a face covering;
● While a person is consuming food or drink;
● When a congregating group of persons maintains at least 6 feet of social distancing; or
● Any other reason or circumstance indicated under Executive Order GA-29.
● Social distancing will be required in the bleachers. Yellow tape is used to mark non-seating areas.
Please only sit in allowable areas.
● Individuals who are confirmed to have, suspected of having, are experiencing symptoms of, or
have been in close contact with an individual who has been confirmed to have COVID-19 should
not enter the facility.
● We will follow all UIL guidelines for game attendance including the 50% capacity requirement.
Therefore only family members of players will be allowed to attend. Students without a guardian
will not be allowed to enter so that we have enough room for parents and family members.

CMS Rider basketball games will be played in split gyms to allow for social distancing at games,
The 7B & 8B games will be played at the intermediate gym while the 7A & 8A games will be
played at the middle school gym. Games will start at 5:00 on Thursday, 1/14/21 with the 2nd
