PHMDC Face Covering Emergency Order #6
Public Health Madison and Dane County (PHMDC) Face Covering Emergency Order #6 has been released and will now extend the mask requirements in Dane County through February 1, 2022, at 12:01 AM.
PHMDC has mandated face coverings be required among people ages two and older when in an enclosed space open to the public where other people, except for members of the person’s household or living unit, are present.
Face coverings are required at all times within VASD indoor spaces by all occupants (student-athletes, coaches, game staff, officials, and spectators).
Face covering means a piece of cloth or other material is worn to cover the nose and mouth completely. A face covering must be secured to the head with ties, ear loops, or elastic bands that go behind the head and must fit snuggly but comfortably against the side of the face. Cloth face coverings must be made with two or more layers of breathable fabric that is tightly woven (i.e., materials that do not let light pass through when held up to a light source). A face covering does not include bandanas, single layer neck gaiters, face shields, goggles, scarves, ski masks, balaclavas, shirt or sweater collars pulled up over the mouth and nose, or covers with slits, exhalation valves, or punctures.
Individuals who are otherwise required to wear a face-covering may remove the face-covering in the following situations:
While eating or drinking.
While actively swimming in the pool.
When federal or state law or regulations permit the removal of a face-covering.

Verona Area High School welcomes you to our athletic website. We remind you that interscholastic events are an extension of the classroom, and lessons are best learned when respect is shown to all.
Please, show good sportsmanship during games and show respect for coaches, players, officials, and fans.
Cheer for your team and not against the opposing team. Avoid profanity, racist; sexist; or ethnic comments; or other intimidating or taunting actions. Let the coaches coach, the officials officiate and the players play.
Enjoy Verona Area High School sports!
