East Marietta National Little League COVID-19 Policy

East Marietta National Little League COVID-19 Policy for 2022

East Marietta National Little League (EMNLL) is committed to keeping our players, families and volunteers safe during our season. Little League International is strongly encouraging leagues, families, and volunteers make every effort to follow the recommendations from the CDC, World Health Organization, and state and local health officials, including vaccination, to help mitigate COVID-19.

We are looking forward to our season and will consider all alternatives if COVID-19 cases impact play.

Per official Little League recommendations, the East Marietta National Little League Board of Directors (BOD) has carefully considered, voted on, enacted, and is communicating the following COVID-19 mitigation plan. 

General Policy

·       Any players, coaches or volunteers who are confirmed positive cases of COVID-19, must isolate according to Georgia Department of Public Health guidance listed at https://dph.georgia.gov/dph-covid-19-guidance

·       If any member of the league, to include players, families, and volunteers, develops any of the COVID-19 symptoms listed below, they are to refrain from attending all baseball activities, and contact their healthcare provider as soon as possible. 

Symptoms             

•           Fever or chills (100.4 or above) 

•           New cough

•           Shortness of breath or trouble breathing

•           New severe/bad headache

•           New loss of taste or smell

•           New congestion or runny nose

•           Muscle or body aches

•           Sore throat

•           Fatigue

•           Diarrhea

•           Nausea or vomiting

Isolation and Quarantine Period 

As of January 7, 2022, per the Georgia Department of Public Health (https://dph.georgia.gov/isolation-contact), you may discontinue home isolation if you had symptoms when:

o   At least 5 days have passed since symptoms first appeared and

    • At least 24 hours have passed since last fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and

    • Symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath) have improved

You may discontinue home isolation if you did NOT have symptoms when:

    • At least 5 days have passed since the positive laboratory test, and you remain asymptomatic

    • Note, if you later develop symptoms, you should follow the guidance for symptomatic persons above.

To determine when 5 days have passed, you can consider day 0 of isolation defined as either the date your symptoms started, if symptomatic, or the date of your first positive test, if asymptomatic. If leaving isolation earlier than 10 days, you should continue to wear a mask around others for the remainder of the 10 days. After 10 days, please continue to follow local masking recommendations or ordinances.

If you are unable to wear a mask when around others, you should continue to isolate for a full 10 days.

Regardless of the day you leave isolation or your ability to wear a mask, you should avoid people who are immunocompromised or at high risk for severe disease, and nursing homes and other high-risk settings, until after at least 10 days.

Notification Guidelines

·       If any member of the league, to include players, families and volunteers, tests positive for COVID-19 during the season they are to notify their Team Manager.  The Team Manager is responsible for notifying their team and a member of the EMNLL BOD.

·       The 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.

Equipment Guidelines

·       EMNLL will provide each team one set of catcher’s gear that can be used by one player, per game. Any additional catcher for that game, must provide their own personal catcher’s helmet and mask.

·       Face Coverings are strongly encouraged but optional for players, coaches, umpires and spectators.

Event (Practice, Game, Scrimmage) Guidelines

·       Any person exhibiting COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms is prohibited from attending events. 

·       Spectators are encouraged to provide their own seating.

Social Distance

·       Social distancing is encouraged when appropriate and feasible.

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.
