Increasing the number of persons for indoor sports to 60 people in a building
This petition is to the governor of the state of Pennsylvania to increase the capacity of indoor sports during the Covid-19 Pandemic from 25 people to 60 people. This will allow for enough people to play basketball, ice hockey, volley ball and most other indoor sports. With only 25 people allowed in the building at a time, most sporting events can not operate. Raising the capacity will allow for full teams, on and off court/ice officials, coaching staff, facility staff, and any other medical or other required support personnel. The same precautions that are being taken with 25 persons would remain in effect during this health crisis (ie. wearing masks, social distancing, taking temperatures etc).
Youth sports are critical to the development, mental well being and physical health of our children. Sports will provide a sense of normalcy along with a positive outlet for the energy.
