California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has released new guidelines for outdoor activities as well as guidance on recreational sporting. Please see below for more infomation.
Youth and Recreational Sports
In efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the CDPH has classified sports by their risk profile, which are Low-Contact, Moderate-Contact, and High-Contact. Depending on a sports Risk Profile (level of contact, IE risk of transmission) as well as it’s general location (indoor or outdoor) the CDPH has developed a table to show what sports will be permitted by what tier a county is currently in. Please click to see the full breakdown of what sports are available by current tier assignment.
A few highlights include:
- Face coverings to be worn when not participating in the activity (e.g., on the sidelines).
- Face coverings to be worn by coaches, support staff and observers at all times, and in compliance with the CDPH Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings.
- Observers maintain at least 6 feet from non-household members.
- No sharing of drink bottles and other personal items and equipment
