Columbia Co. schools prohibit spectators at school events


COLUMBIA COUNTY (WJBF) – In light of the coronavirus outbreak, Columbia County School leaders are prohibiting spectators at events during or after school hours.

The district posted this on its website:

March 13, 2020 Update: In response to the possible spread of the Coronavirus, the CCSD will prohibit spectator attendance at school activities and events occurring during and after school beginning Monday, March 16, through the end of the month. At that time, the district will reevaluate this situation and respond accordingly.

Additionally, because this is an evolving health concern, please be aware that further action, to include complete cancelation of all activities and/or school is a possibility.
