SDYS COVID-19 Guidelines

SDYS COVID-19 Guidelines and Information

Currently we can practice only under San Diego County guidelines and protocols as defined in the COVID-19 protocol documents below.

NO games or scrimmages.

The California Department of Public Health has issued guidelines which allow for softball teams to play Inter-Team games once our county returns back to the "Red" COVID tier. As soon as we are able to play games, we will. Until then, teams are able to practice with safety protocols in place.

Information from the County can be found on their COVID-19 website. The current Emergency Regulations from the SD County Health Officer can be found here.

Please read the documents below for all current practice protocols. Before attending the first practice, each player must return a signed copy of the SDYS COVID-19 Waiver as well.

SDYS protocols for players or players' household members who have tested positive for COVID, or players who have been in close contact with someone who has COVID. 

To determine if you've been exposed to COVID, please refer to the CDC guidelines on when to quarantine:

  • The player must inform their coach, team and the SDYS board of their status.
  • The player is not allowed to practice for at least 10 days and test negative for COVID. Also see CDC guidelines for when quarantined people can be around others.
  • If the player or players household member has tested positive and team possibly exposed:
    • Cancel practice
    • Recommend that the team is tested
  • If the player was possibly exposed to COVID outside of the team and household:
    • Determine if the source of exposure is also affiliated with SDYS - if not, practice can continue - if so, cancel practice and recommend that the team is tested.
  • If unsure, at any point in time, cancel practice!
  • Stay home if you are not feeling 100% healthy!  Practice can wait.

CDC guidelines on what counts as close contact:

  • You were within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more
  • You provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19
  • You had direct physical contact with the person (hugged or kissed them)
  • You shared eating or drinking utensils
  • They sneezed, coughed, or somehow got respiratory droplets on you
