Warren Youth Basketball Association’s Covid-19 Statement
Dear WYBA Parents and Players:
We are excited to play indoors at the Warren school gyms for the 2022/23 season. Getting our kids to play basketball is our priority, and we hope to have a relatively normal season without interruptions from Covid-19 cases. We need your help to make that happen. The WYBA takes the safety of you and your children seriously during this Covid-19 pandemic. Our facilities usage agreement with the Warren School Board specifies that the WYBA will abide by all applicable laws from NJ State agencies and NJ Executive Orders related to Covid-19.
Preemptive Action and Reporting Positve Cases:
If anyone is not feeling well or believes they may have Covid-19 or any viral infection, please stay home! Parents/Guardians have an obligation to tell their child’s coach of any Covid infections or positive tests. No player will be penalized for missing practice or games if they are feeling sick or have to quarantine. The WYBA is obligated to tell the school nurses of any positive Covid tests.
The WYBA recommends that all coaches and players, when they are eligible, get a Covid-19 vaccine and all availablee boosters. According to the CDC, the vaccine is safe and effective. V
In the event of a known positive Covid-19 case, the WYBA will make a case-by-case decision on who needs to quarantine based on current guidelines. Even if everyone on the team is not ‘required’ to quarantine, that does not mean that the team will continue to practice or play with a depleted roster until the quarantine is over.
