Everyone Can Help Follow Preventative Measures and Best Practices Onsite
Everyday preventive actions can be proactively taken to reduce risks. Capital Sportsplex strongly recommends the following precautionary guidelines be followed by your players and families:
Wash hands frequently with soap and water (at least 30 seconds) especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing the nose, coughing, or sneezing.
Avoid touching the mouth, eyes or nose with hands. Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean up team and training areas after every use (e.g. throw used water bottles in the trash). Use alcohol-based sanitizers (60% alcohol) in addition to frequent hand washing.
Feel free to bring sanitizing products.
Carry small bottles of alcohol-based sanitizers to use when hand-washing facilities are unavailable.
Do not share water bottles or food.
No pre, during, or post-game handshakes with opposing team members or game officials.
International team walkouts and hand-in-hand/arm-in-arm team huddles are not recommended.
If anyone associated with a team (coach, player, family member) feels ill prior to a scheduled event, please have them stay home and not attend the event in order to reduce risk to others.
If anyone associated with a team (coach, player, family member) becomes ill during an event and has symptoms such as coughing, fever, or general malaise, please contact a medical professional; to reduce exposure, consider self-isolation until evaluated by medical personnel; immediately exit the facility; do not come into personal contact with other participants.
