Athletes and Parents,
Late in the day yesterday 11/17/2020, The Governor’s Office and Oregon Health Authority posted new information for k-12 sports and activities, as it pertains to the Governor’s Executive Order 20-65. Listed below are the highlighted bullet points.
- Prohibition on all K-12 School Sports indoors, including conditioning, training and competition.
- Outdoor training, conditioning and competition is still allowed for non-contact and minimal/medium contact sports for schools utilizing On-Site, Hybrid, or Comprehensive Distance Learning.
- Outdoor training and conditioning is still allowed for full-contact sports for schools utilizing On-Site, Hybrid, or Comprehensive Distance Learning provided they don’t include full contact of any kind.
- Mask/face coverings must be worn when actively participating in an outdoor sport.
- Closure of indoor and outdoor swimming pools, licensed spa pools and indoor sport courts.
- Limit the maximum capacity for each outdoor K-12 school sporting event to 50 people. Maintain physical distancing of at least six (6) feet per person.
- Individuals must self-quarantine for 14 days upon return to Oregon if they have traveled out of state for recreational purposes or as part of an athletic traveling team.
Essentially, at this time all indoor activities are shut down, pending the Governor lifting the current freeze or new information that may come out.
Indoor facilities would include Field houses, batting cages or track shed, even if it is for check in and screening.
Outdoor activities may continue providing there is no physical contact, 6 ft social distancing is maintained at all times, everyone is wearing masks at all times and the total capacity does not exceed 50 people.
Also , if athletes/students are participating with other associations and go to an out of state competition, they are on a 14 day self-quarantine from accessing any of our activities when they return.
If you have any questions, please contact your coach or advisor.
