CMS announces new event guidelines

May 6. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools has revised its end-of-year activity guidelines based on Gov. Cooper’s Executive Order No. 209 that went into effect April 30.

Under the new CMS guidelines, scheduled performances—including dance, theater, orchestra and band—will allow no more than one to two guests per participant, dependent upon school venue capacity. For indoor events, each participant will be allowed to bring no more than one to two guests not to exceed 30 percent capacity of the venue. Face coverings will be required. Families/guest groups must physically distance and sit at least 6 feet apart from other families/guest groups. A screening will be conducted prior to entry to the facility or performance event.

For outdoor events, each participant will be allowed to bring no more than one to two guests.

Face coverings are encouraged but will not be required at outdoor performances. Families must physically distance and sit at least 6 feet apart from other families/guest groups.

Once the performance has been completed, families and guests will be required to exit campus immediately.

Students or staff may continue to wear face coverings outdoors if they are more comfortable doing so. The use of face coverings outdoors is encouraged for unvaccinated individuals who cannot maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others. The use of face coverings is also strongly encouraged outdoors when individuals are gathering in large numbers in crowded or dense spaces. Athletic events at CMS indoor and outdoor facilities remain limited to 30 percent of capacity.
