Archdiocese Receives Complaints About St. Pius on Overcrowded Basketball Game During Pandemic

(Festus) St. Pius High School in Festus will enforce mask wearing and limit the number of spectators at sporting events after the Archdiocese of St. Louis fielded complaints about the crowd at a recent basketball game.

The St. Pius boys basketball team drew a large crowd to its game last Friday.

Fans were packed tight in the bleachers and few were wearing face coverings.

Photos from the game circulated widely on social media, prompting calls to the school and the Archdiocese.
