Blackford County is now in CODE RED in regard to COVID. As such, adjustments were made in regard to fan attendance. 

Based on the information given, we will be in CODE RED through such point that we have CODE ORANGE “levels” two weeks in a row. Therefore, this policy should be in affect for at least 3 weeks. Once we return to CODE ORANGE, the former plan will be tweaked and re-implemented, but we may no longer use vouchers. 

This information will be shared with all opponents. Adjustments may be made, and will be shared, if necessary.
