Question: Is it mandatory for spectators to wear a face covering while attending middle and high school sporting events in Harris County?

Answer: Yes.

Spectators are required to wear a mask at school sporting events in Harris County, whether indoors or outdoors, according to Harris County Public Health.

HCPH encourages spectators to carry a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol to disinfect their hands in case they touch rails, doors, or seats, and before eating or drinking.
