District COVID-19 Mitigation Guidelines

  • Outdoor use of MSBSD facilities (e.g. tracks, fields, courts, etc.) was reinstated on June 1, 2020 along with indoor facility use on June 29, 2020.


    The following guidelines remain in effect for facility use.

    • Stay six feet or more away from non-family members.
    • Wash your hands frequently.
    • Wipe down surfaces frequently.
    • Wear a face covering when in a public setting in close contact with others.
    • Stay home if you are sick and get tested for COVID-19 if you have symptoms.
    • Be mindful and respectful of others, particularly those vulnerable to the virus such as seniors and those with existing health issues.


    It is the District’s responsibility to help in minimizing the spread of COVID-19 while allowing for community and school use of our facilities. For any proposed large public gathering or event, the event organizer must first consult with public health before scheduling. Event organizers must establish a COVID-19 mitigation plan addressing practices and protocols to protect staff and the public. This must include entryway signage notifying the public of the event COVID-19 mitigation plan and stating clearly that any person with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 may not enter the premises. Social distancing of at least ten feet between non-household individuals should be maintained while participating in any fitness or sporting activity. The event organizer should provide hand washing capability or sanitizer.


    Beginning August 3rd, 2020, anyone using an MSBSD facility will be required to wear a face covering (mask) in accordance with District guidelines. 



    • Use of facilities by persons who have not completed their self-quarantine in accordance with State of Alaska Health Mandate 10 for interstate and international travel to Alaska is prohibited.
    • Facility Use is limited to community members of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough until further notice. This is to limit attendance for participants for indoor and outdoor activities to residents within the District’s boundary in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.  It is the using organization’s responsibility to limit attendance for their event.
