Safety

ADOPTED COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS:

Over the past few months our Board has reached out to several resources including HR contacts, college coaches, and other travel softball organizations to collect input and prepare our own safety protocols. It is important that our coaches, families and players have these protocols to follow during these unprecedented times so everyone has a clear understanding of our policies and expectations. Our goal is simple, to keep our families and players safe by taking reasonable precautions and prevent an entire team or multiple teams from having to shutdown during the season due to an outbreak.

PREVENTATIVE PROTOCOLS:

  • Coaches will be required to do a Player Health Check prior to participation of any scheduled activity.  This simple step as established by MHSAA has helped catch infections quickly and prevents player-to-player transmissions.
  • Wear your mask at all times when you are indoors and always when within 6 feet of other people.  This includes indoor practices and team bonding activities, etc.
  • Follow and abide by each tournaments COVID-19 guidelines.
  • Keep your distance.  Stay 6 feet apart whenever possible.  Have conversations at a distance and be aware when around others.  Coach’s will be asked to have team and parent meetings remotely using Zoom or Teams to cut down on in person group gatherings.
  • Wash your hands often.

EXPOSURE PROTOCOLS:

  • COVID-19 Symptoms – Do not attend any team function.  Inform your coach and contact your doctor.  HangTuf requires a negative test or doctor’s release to return to team activities.
  • Tested Positive for COVID-19 – You must stay at home until 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared and you’ve had no fever for 24 hours (without the aid of medication), or you have received a negative test.
  • Close Contact (Single Incident) – You must quarantine at home for 14 days from the last contact.  A negative test does not alleviate this requirement.
  • Close Contact (Reoccurring, Living with Individual) – If you have regular close contact with a person who has COVID-19, you must stay at home for 14 days AFTER the infected person has recovered.  The 14-day clock does not start until the infected person has met the 10-day requirement or has tested negative.

Close Contact Definition:  Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection).
