Austin ISD changes course with athletics, now will allow full capacity at games

Education

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Independent School District athletic venues will no longer have a capacity limit, officials said Monday.

All visitors for athletic events will be required to wear masks. AISD says families and spectators are encouraged to social distance when possible. The protocol will be for both home and away games for all sports.

Previously on Aug. 20, AISD said games would be limited to 25% capacity. Last week, Travis High School was set to play San Antonio Burbank in a scrimmage, but San Antonio ISD canceled all out-of-district contests until the season officially starts this week.

Anderson and McCallum are set to kick off the Austin ISD football season Thursday at 7:30 p.m. from House Park in the annual “Taco Shack Bowl” rivalry game.
