East Marietta National Little League COVID-19 Policy : Spring 2021

East Marietta National Little League (EMNLL) is committed to keeping our players, families and volunteers as safe as possible.  We are looking forward to our upcoming spring season and will consider all alternatives if COVID-19 cases impact play.  EMNLL Board of Directors elected to provide a FULL refund if the season cancels by March 6, 2021.

- Players are required to wear PPE off the field.  Players are strongly encouraged to wear PPE on the field.  Coaches and players will be provided one PPE (face covering) with their uniforms.

- Each team will assign an individual to monitor these guidelines and keep attendance for contact tracing, we will provide each team hand sanitizer to utilize before and during events if necessary.

- Evaluation time slots will be added to allow for greater social distancing, players will be required to wear PPE during evaluations.

Notification Guidelines
- If any member of the league, to include players, families and volunteers, tests positive for COVID-19 during the Spring 2021 season they are to notify their Team Manager.  The Team Manager is responsible for notifying their team and a member of the EMNLL Board of Directors (BOD). 
- EMNLL BoD will communicate to all Team Managers the details of the case (while respecting the privacy of the individual).  The Team Manager will share this information with their team.
- If a team has a player with a positive test within 48 hours of their last team event (game or practice) EMNLL will require that team to quarantine per CDC guidelines (10 days from exposure without testing or 7 days with negative test).  If team members were wearing a mask at all times (on and off the field) and if players were not within 6’ for a total of 15 minutes or more, quarantining is not required. If last team event was a game, the opposing team will be subject to same guidelines.

We appreciate your adherence with the guidelines.  It is critically important that we work together to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
