BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - To prevent any possible spread of the coronavirus, one local school is changing the way it handles concessions during football games.
Booneville High School Athletics Director Michael Smith said lines at concessions stands can be a place for congestion among spectators.
To avoid congestion, the school split concessions between home and away fans.
Smith said the school is using prepackaged condiments instead of a traditional bottle of ketchup or mustard. Often times, schools have fans handle the same condiment bottles throughout the night.
He also said the school done away with items like lettuce and tomatoes, things that would be separate.
The school is also having fans pay differently.
"We're asking people to use correct change," Smith said. "We've rounded prices up and down both to get it to where we are not using coins and things also."
Although some changes may not be ideal, he is hoping all spectators will understand.
"Just be appreciative that these kids are going to get an opportunity to play, and as adults, we need to be respectful of that and make sure that these kids are able to play and continue to provide an atmosphere where they can continue to play."
Social distancing markers are also placed throughout the stadium to remind spectators to be mindful of spacing while at the game.
