Please see the below memo as issued by the CFSL Executive Committee re: the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic. We are monitoring this situation very closely, and will be posting updates as needed. Stay tuned to our website and Facebook group for the most up to date information re: games, events etc.
Due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and other health authorities, CFSL is implementing some new, mandatory health and safety procedures as part of a proactive approach to preventing the spread of germs.
CFSL takes this threat very seriously. With over 500 members in our league, we believe it imperative to issue the following health and safety and adopt the following procedures to ensure we are taking a proactive approach to preventing the spread of germs.
CFSL requests all members of the league to follow these guidelines (similar to the guidelines other organizations have issued):
CFSL will continue to provide hand sanitizer, soap, at all games. Social distancing is still encouraged while inside of the park
CFSL is immediately instituting a precautionary “no-contact, no-handshake policy” to be observed at every level of the organization until further notice. This includes all physical contact and extends to customary game-related activities, such as post-game handshakes between members of opposing teams. Instead, staff, players and coaches should use verbal queues, such as saying “good game,” without shaking hands, high-fiving or fist-bumping.
We encourage all members to observe good hygiene practices and avoid coming out to Sunday games or host bar events if you are feeling ill. We strongly encourage the following:
