Kokomo High School (KHS) will enact enhanced safety protocols, including limiting spectators at school-sponsored events, while following Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) and Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) guidelines.
The ISDH has established a color-coded county map measuring weekly cases per 100,000 residents and seven-day all tests positivity rate. ISDH assigns a color based on the average of these two metrics, which is updated weekly on Wednesdays at www.coronavirus.in.gov.
The following guidelines provided by Kokomo High School will determine the approved spectator participation at school-sponsored events, including athletic contests. These winter guidelines are enacted based on the ISDH color-coding of Howard County with assigned colors of blue, yellow, orange, and red status for at least 14 calendar days. ISDH Commissioner, Howard County Health Department, IHSAA, or Kokomo High School may impose additional guidelines, including further limiting spectators at school-sponsored events, if Howard County is assigned any color-coding for at least 14 calendar days.
