Sharon Youth Baseball and Softball Association (SYBSA) Safety & Response Plan - 2021
This document represents the COVID-19 Safety and Response Plan for SYBSA updated 3/22/2021. The best practices described within have been compiled from resources and direct guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) among others with a primary focus on the MA state guidelines. The guidelines listed in this document are for use during Massachusetts Phase IV, Step 1 (March 22, 2021) reopening for youth and adult amateur activities. Baseball/Softball has been defined as a 'moderate risk' sport and the guidelines below are in adherence with the state's moderate risk' guidelines. Full state guidance can be found here.
This plan describes how SYBSA will fulfill requirements as established by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. If there is a significant update, these guidelines may be modified by the COVID Rules Committee and SYBSA Executive Board throughout the 2021 season.
Vaccination against COVID-19 is currently ongoing. However, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts currently has provided no special rules regarding individuals who have been vaccinated. Likewise, all rules contained within this document apply to all individuals, regardless of vaccination status. Should the Commonwealth of Massachusetts issue specific guidance regarding vaccinated individuals later we may modify this policy as described in the previous paragraph.
Please Note: The Safety & Response Plan is a "living" document that is currently being reviewed and updated based on best practices and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts guidelines. Our reopening committee and COVID Compliance Officer are currently revising and updating policies and procedures for this plan for the 2021 season.
