Indoor sports COVID-19 protocols

I hope all is well with you and your families.

We have just received word a few moments ago regarding a change in the California Department of Public Health Education Guidance and I wanted to pass this information along to you immediately.

Specifically, the link below contains an update to the CDPH Education Guidance with respect to indoor sports (see #16: School-Based Extracurricular Activities). The updated guidance is self-explanatory and now contains, in part, the following:

When actively practicing, conditioning, or competing in indoor sports, masks are required by participants even during heavy exertion, as practicable. If masks are not worn due to heavy exertion, it is strongly recommended that individuals undergo screening testing at least once weekly. An FDA-approved antigen test, PCR test, or pooled PCR test is acceptable for evaluation of an individual’s COVID-19 status.


I hope this information is useful to you in the time ahead and if you have any questions, or I can help you in any way at all, do not hesitate to contact our office. My staff and I are ready, willing and able to assist you in any way we possibly can.

Thank you very much for your help and support, it is truly appreciated
