The Minnesota State High School League announced that a limited number of spectators will be permitted to the Girl's State Basketball Tournament starting Friday due to Coronavirus concerns.
According to John Millea of the Minnesota State High School League, due to coronavirus concerns, a limited number of spectators will be permitted at the girl's state basketball tournament and the adapted floor hockey tournaments on Friday and Saturday and the remaining Section Boys Basketball games.
There will also be no consolation-bracket basketball for Girl's State Basketball or Floor Hockey Games on Friday and Saturday. There has been no official statement on the Boys State Basketball tournament that is scheduled for next week.
We still plan to broadcast the Fillmore Central vs. Henning State Quarterfinal game on 103.1 KFIL, along with any other Fillmore Central games that follow.

According to Region 1A Secretary Brad Johnson, everything is an all go for the Section 1A and 1AA finals at the Mayo Civic Center. There will not be a limit on spectators and all are welcomed to attend the game.
