FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) -- Four of the school districts in Allen County will limit the number of fans allowed in the stands for fall sports to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Fort Wayne Community Schools, Southwest Allen County, Northwest Allen County, and Bishops Dwenger and Luers drafted a fan plan for fall dual events like football, soccer, cheerleading, cross country, tennis, united flag, and volleyball.

Plan drafted by FWCS, SACS, and NACS for fall sports fans.

The plan says from now through August 31, no fans will be allowed at sporting events and that only essential personnel will be admitted.

From September 1-13, assuming large gatherings are allowed, ticket allowances will be provided to each school based on the level of event, like JV or varsity, and will be restricted to up to four parents or guardians only. Those people will be expected to wear masks and social distance.

Beyond September 14 the plan is to be determined, but it says the goal is "to START the season and FINISH the season!"
