    The NYSDOH has changed guidance on spectators including “…allowing 500 spectators at outdoor athletic events starting May 10th….”
    Outdoor Athletics: Due to typical spring athletic attendance and our outdoor facility capacity, Gowanda Central School will no longer be restricting outdoor attendance at athletic events. Spectators visiting other schools may still need to adhere to the 2 per athlete rule. Check the Athletic Calendar for those schools.
    Indoor Athletics (Wrestling): Weekend events- No Spectators. Weekday Events- 2 per athlete of the home team only.

    COVID Updates

    Return to Play (sports and physical education) after a COVID-19 infectionThe NY State Department of Health is requiring that any student diagnosed with Covid-19 receive a doctor’s examination and a release note to return to gym and sports. If the primary doctor recommends a gradual return to play then the student will need to complete the 4 step process with his/her coach or gym teacher. This process takes 6 days to complete if the student remains symptom-free. 2/22/2021
