The Katy Independent School District Athletics Department Thursday updated its ticketing policy for basketball games in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In a statement, the district said parents of basketball players will be provided parent cards, and when they present those cards at games, they will be permitted to purchase up to four tickets.
Tickets are $2 for students and $5 for adults. Students will be admitted only if accompanied by an adult and has one of the four tickets.
Other passes and badges will be honored as follows:
- Booster club passes admit the holder only.
- Staff identification badges admit the holder only.
- Junior high sports passes admit the holder and one other person.
No general admission tickets will be sold to the general public. Non-district teams are expected to follow the same ticket purchase protocols.
Fans are expected to wear face coverings at all times and socially distance themselves by six feet from other groups.
All entry gates will have self-screening instructions, and fans are expected to read the information before entering the gym.
The district said it is limited to 50% capacity for fans at all sporting venues. When more than one game is being played in a given night, fans are encouraged to attend only one game, thereby making room for others arriving to watch the next game.
The district issued similar guidelines for football games earlier this year.
