Following further consultation, AGSL is making a revision to the face covering protocol for players that we announced on Tuesday.
Effective immediately, the following is the face covering guideline for players:
Players are not required to wear face coverings when batting, base running, and playing in the field. Players are not required to wear face coverings when in the dugout or bench area.
The protocols for coaches and spectators remain as was announced yesterday. As a reminder, these are the current protocols:
Coaches need to continue to wear face coverings when they cannot consistently maintain social distancing. This means in huddles, in the dugout, and during conferences.
Spectators may take off their face coverings when they are at games or practices if they can remain socially distant from other family units.
Please note that families or players may choose to continue to wear face coverings during games and/or practices if that is their preference.
As a reminder, please still be asking yourself these COVID screening questions before bringing your player to a game or practice:
1. Has your child had signs of a fever or a temperature of 100.3 degrees or higher in the past 24 hours?
2. Does your child have a combination of: chills, fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell?
3. Has your child tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
4. Has your child had close contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
5. Is your child or anyone in your family waiting on COVID-19 test results?
If the answer to any of the above questions will be “yes,” PLEASE STAY HOME.
As always, feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any COVID-related concerns. Thanks for your patience as we work through this process.
