Spectators can go to some high school high-risk sporting events in Jefferson County. The county modified the rules, saying each player can have 2 people watching in-person. The crowd though will be capped at 50 people to obey state guidelines. Included in that crowd of 50 people are the players, coaches, referees and others.

County officials say the changes are happening because the area’s rate of transmission is down. While the county says limited spectators are okay, it points out individual school districts have the choice to not allow spectators if they so choose.
