Safety tips for athletes returning to play

Here are some simple things to consider when deciding to participate in team sports:

  • Stay home if sick.
  • Players should bring their own equipment, like gloves and bats, if possible.
  • Reduce physical closeness and keep 6 feet of space between players when possible.
  • Wear a mask if possible.
  • Players should clean their hands before and after practices, games, and sharing equipment.
  • Tell a coach or staff member if you don’t feel well.
  • Consider your personal risk for illness and don’t participate if you are high risk.
