CHILDRESS – Due to the influx of COVID-19, Childress County Judge Jay Mayden said changes are being made throughout Childress County, including the Childress Independent School District.
While Mayden said Childress Independent School District (CISD) schools will stay open, CISD Superintendent Carl Taylor said attendance will
be limited at football and basketball games. Thursday night’s area playoff game will happen, but each player will get six tickets. No one else will have a chance to get tickets.
Basketball players will also get six tickets to games unless the COVID-19 situation gets better in Childress, Taylor added.
“At all football and basketball games, face masks will be required at all times,” Taylor said. “We’re just trying to not have people congregate and to be safe.” Businesses will continue to operate at 50 percent capacity and the face mask mandate will continue, Mayden explained. “We are asking churches to not have services for four weeks,” Mayden added. “This is just a request.”
These decisions were made at a meeting Mayden had with officials from Childress Regional Medical Center, City of Childress and CISD at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 16.
