That is a Wake County Public School System policy. However, it is unclear whether that policy will be adjusted as the season moves forward -- especially in light of Gov. Roy Cooper's decision to ease some COVID-19 restrictions starting Friday.
Student-athletes and fans in the stands will be required to wear masks at all times.
There will also be no halftime performances.
