We received the following update from the Maine Principals Association (MPA) regarding the masking requirements for athletes and spectators at athletic practices and events. Beginning today, masks are not required for outdoor practices and competitions. Masks are recommended when 6 feet of physical distance is hard to maintain (e.g., athletes on the bench). They are also required when individuals go inside (e.g., to locker rooms, rest rooms, or on a bus). Spectators are not required to wear a mask at outside events if they are able to maintain 6 feet of distancing.
