27 opens stands to home-team fans only

Brighton schools opened their stands to home-team fans only, effective Feb. 15. Opposing teams’ fans will be able to live stream their games.
27J Athletic Director Harry Waterman said the decision was based on the district’s focus to provide “our student-athletes the opportunity to participate in extracurricular events.”
“We're pleased to be able to begin allowing a limited number of spectators beginning this week,” Waterman said. “However, with our limited resources, we are only permitting two home team guests per athlete to attend at this time.  We want to ensure that our event management team can safely conduct our contests as well as simplify our contact tracing should it become necessary.”
Adams 12 and St. Vrain schools adopted similar procedures effective this week. Adams 14 is not allowing any fans into the gyms or swimming pools.
“We are not keeping fans away. We are following health guidelines and best practices all while ensuring our athletes and athletic staff are kept safe and given every available opportunity to represent their school and participate in the activity of their choosing,”
said 27J Schools spokesperson Tracy Rudnick.
“Our choice to slowly open up to limited home spectators aligns with a number of districts that have recently implemented similar policies,” Waternab said. “Greeley, Fort Morgan and Roosevelt all started this way and have recently added guests as their COVID dial has improved a little quicker than ours.”
