Lincoln County School District (LCSD) officials say students and spectators will wear masks according to guidance provided by Oregon’s governor and health authority.

Majalise Tolan, Director of Secondary Education and Athletics for LCSD issued a statement Wednesday saying the school district would cancel Lincoln County jamborees in Newport, Toledo and Lincoln City scheduled for Aug. 26 and 27.

According to Tolan, Newport High School Volleyball made the decision to cancel their 12-team tournament, slated for Aug. 28.

“We look forward to beginning standard two-team regular season play following all guidance from Oregon School Activities Association, Oregon Health Authority, and Governor Brown’s Office,” Tolan wrote in an email. “This guidance includes masks for all indoor spectators, non-competing athletes, game management staff, and coaches.”

Tolan cites the most recent requirements, beginning Aug. 27, which state actively participating athletes are not required to wear masks. Masks will be required outdoors when physical distancing is not possible, such as sitting in grandstands, waiting at a start/finish line or standing on the sidelines waiting to compete.

LCSD said they are looking forward to the athletic season and will also be following guidance from the Oregon School Activities Association.
