Tuesday, January 5th, 2020 update to Manti High School and Region XIV activity attendance protocol:

Given the current COVID-19 Pandemic, we are excited that our winter sports teams are able to have a season. However, Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA) and Region XIV guidelines stipulate that we must severely limit our attendance at boys and girls basketball games, wrestling tournaments and duals in an effort to keep spectators safe.

In cooperation with the UHSAA, Region XIV has updated the event attendance protocol. Every participant is now allowed four people to attend each event. In accordance with the prior protocol, every participant was given two individualized passes. These passes are still required but now count for up to two people per pass for admission. Guests must enter together and each participant's guests must sit as a family group. Social distancing and the proper wearing of masks are still required to attend every sporting event. We are excited more people are allowed to attend events and hopefully this means there is light at the end of the tunnel! Thank you for all you do. We are especially grateful for your patience and kindness during this difficult time. 

Up to four spectators per each participating MHS Drill Team member, band member and cheerleader may also gain entry into home events if their student is participating in that particular game, tournament or dual. If these patrons choose to come only for halftime to see their student perform, they will not be charged an entry fee but must still present their school issued pass. If these patrons choose to stay for longer than halftime, they must pay to gain entry. Eligible spectators who have a super booster, family or educator pass may continue to use these passes to gain free entry into any home event.

We are grateful that several local media outlets are working closely with us to provide coverage of our athletic events. Manti Telephone will broadcast at least all varsity boys and girls home basketball games and home wrestling duals. These events can be viewed on MTCC Channel 3 and HD 800 or at live.manti.com. You may follow their facebook page at facebook.com/mantitel to stay up-to-date on which games they will be covering. Mid-Utah Radio will also cover several of our games, and CentraCom will frequently provide coverage via their local outlets.   

While we regret we are not able to fill our gyms with fans, we are most grateful our sports seasons have resumed and that our students are able to be in school. We invite you to follow our seasons and support our student athletes and coaches. Go Templars!
