(WEHT)- The Illinois High School Association announced Thursday it will “significantly limit” attendance to state tournaments, including this weekend’s Class 1A and 2A Boys Basketball State Finals to reduce the potential spread of coronavirus, also known as COVID-19.

The decision comes after the Peoria, Illinois City/County health department recommended that no more than 60 spectators per school be allowed in for each contest. The IHSA will provide each school protocol to determine who receives tickets.

A full refund will be provided for tickets already purchased for remaining contests. A list of the events affected can be found here.

Right now, there are not any confirmed cases of coronavirus in our Tri-State area.
