COVID-19 Message from our CEO

updated memo | november 21

To:        All Members, Affiliates and Families
From:   Chris Branscome, Chief Executive Officer
CC:      Board of Directors
Date:   21 November 2020
RE:      COVID 19 Advisory - UPDATED Masking
 

The Pennsylvania Department of Health amended its masking order from November 17 regarding exemptions for athletes.  Please read the order in its entirely as well as the FAQ’s on the website.  The exemption addresses that an athlete may remove their mask during play if the mask causes a medical condition, including a respiratory condition that impedes breathing.
 

  • All alternatives should be exhausted before an individual is exempted
  • If the sport, equipment, or exertion level does not allow for face covering to be worn safely then the athlete should not wear a face covering
  • Proof of a condition or disability is not required  

The amendments are in effect for all competitions tomorrow, Sunday November 22.

The Department of Health asks that everyone makes best efforts to wear face coverings during athletic activities.  All coaches and substitutes must wear face coverings.  Game officials should wear face coverings, but the exemptions may also apply, particularly to center referees. 

Coaches and players should consult with their organization leadership to address any appropriate club policy.
