As a parent of a child that plays basketball and now is getting ready for the track and field season, I can understand the frustration that many parents have about the current regulations set by the CDC. Right now some of the school districts will allow two parents per home game to attend, which is ok if you don't need a baby sitter to watch your other young ones while both parents go to the game, and that's just one example of the inconvenience these current guidelines causes.

Now that spring sports like, baseball, softball, soccer, and track will be beginning soon, there are many parents like myself, that would like to know when families will be allowed in the stands?

A spokesperson of the New York Department of Health just recently said.

The state continues to work with large venues and event organizers throughout New York, including those at higher education institutions to review plans to safely allow spectators for competition, arts, and entertainment.

Although I totally agree with keeping our children and everyone around us safe, and like many of the parents here in Buffalo, I believe there should be a way to safely allow families to attend outdoor events. There is still no official word from the CDC on when outdoor sports will be able to allow spectators, but I'm sure parents will find a creative way to be at games to show support and, cheer on the kids as they play their games this spring.
