Algonquin-based Community Unit District 300 on Friday announced spectator restrictions at its high schools and middle schools, which will go into effect immediately.
The district announced the restrictions because of elevated COVID-19 cases.
For events in gymnasiums, there will be a four-ticket limit per student participant and a maximum of 50 students allowed in each student section. For events in auditoriums, there will be at least one seat open between each household pod.
Additional spectators will not be allowed.
