COVID-19 GUIDELINES CAPITOL LL






We are looking forward to playing baseball at Capitol Little League in 2022.  We were able to play successfully the last two years within the state and local COVID 19 guidelines used for 2020 and 2021 seasons.   UPDATED April 4, 2022.

COVID-19 KEY POINTS CAPITOL LITTLE LEAGUE ACTIVITY GUIDELINES:

The 2022 Capitol Little League season/s plan to proceed, but due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we will be cautiously returning to regular baseball.

We will continually review and adapt this guidance as needed to best safeguard players, coaches, volunteers and spectators if there are new changes to state and local guidelines.

As we have learned in last two years, the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. 
The following activities can prevent the spread:

·         Maintain good social distance (at least 6 feet). This is very important in preventing the spread of COVID-19.

·         Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

·         Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.

·         People who are sick or have a fever should stay at home. Players should notify team manager if ill.

·         If you have a known exposure to someone with Covid19, stay at home; test for Covid19 and if positive, follow the current guidance.
