Clean and disinfect

  • Clean high touch surfaces daily.
  • If someone is sick or has tested positive for COVID-19, disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them using detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.

Reduce physical closeness between players when possible

  • Allow players to focus on building individual skills, shooting, passing, dribbling, and strength training
  • Limit full contact between players to game days (avoid during practice)
  • Increase space between players in the practice areas, including on the court, and bench
  • Avoid high fives, handshakes, or hugs

Minimize sharing of equipment or gear

  • Encourage players to bring their own equipment
  • Clean and disinfect shared items between use

 Identify small groups and keep them together

  • Avoid mixing between groups
  • Stagger the arrival and drop off of each group to limit interaction
  • Have scrimmages within team to limit exposure

Implement plans to space out spectators by 6 feet at games or competitions.

  • Limit nonessential visitors, spectators, and volunteers.

Wear a mask

  • In indoor public places, people ages 2 and older should wear a mask if they are:
  • Not fully vaccinated
  • Fully vaccinated in an area with substantial or high transmission
  • Fully vaccinated with weakened immune systems In general, in outdoor settings, you do not need to wear a mask. In areas with high numbers of COVID-19 cases, consider wearing a mask in crowded outdoor settings and for activities with close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated.

Wash your hands often

  • COVID-19 vaccines are effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19, especially severe illness and death.
  • Vaccines are safe, effective, and free!

Test to prevent spread to others
