Also at this time, all individuals in the lobby area will be asked to leave the building. No one will be allowed to return to the main court or inside the building at this time.

All spectators are expected to remain seated during all games. Anyone standing or roaming about will be asked to sit in the stands.

All side doors must remain closed. Anyone allowing entry through a side door will be instructed to leave.
