I'll post the verbiage on the original down below here. UIL also sent out an updated letter week before this scolding everyone that they would shut things down if everything isn't followed. Sounds like you're in a community calling their bluff.
Spectators, Audiences, Fans and Media
Schools may allow spectators to attend games, contests, or events within a maximum 50% capacity limitation, provided that appropriate spacing between spectators is maintained according to the protocol, and according to the following:
Schools and/or host sites should post visible signs and/or messaging stating any individuals who are confirmed to have, suspected of having, are experiencing symptoms of, or have been in close contact with an individual who has been confirmed to have COVID-19 should not enter the facility.
Spectators, audiences, fans and media are required to wear face coverings as described in Executive Order GA-29.
Sites are encouraged to utilize remote ticketing options to help manage capacity limitations within a maximum 50% occupancy. Paper tickets and programming should be minimized to help avoid transferable materials.
If possible, set reserved times for entry to avoid mass arrivals.
Groups should maintain at least six feet of distance from other groups at all times, including the process of admission and seating. A group is defined as no more than 10 people including the members of the household and those persons who traveled together to the facility.
Schools should not allow seating in consecutive rows, and should block off seating to maintain a minimum six feet of distance between groups.
Pathways for spectator ingress and egress should be clearly marked and unobstructed.
Schools should provide hand sanitizing stations and/or hand washing stations at entrances and inside the facility.
Seating, hand rails, and other common surfaces should be cleaned and disinfected prior to each game or contest.
Press Box seating should include social distancing of at least six feet between individuals when possible.
Schools should limit access to working media providing coverage of the event to ensure protocols are followed.
Post-game interviews should be conducted while wearing face coverings and maintaining at least six feet of distance between the interviewer and individual being interviewed.
