South Wake Sabres 2021 COVID-19 Policy

Updated Sunday, May 30, 2021 by South Wake Sabres Steering Committee

General Procedures

  1. All procedures and policies will follow and/or be superseded by local and state guidelines.
  2. All practices, meetings and competitions will comply with current government recommendations and requirements for gatherings. Currently, the CDC guidelines for vaccinated people are located here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated.html.  NC Governor’s Executive Order 215 lifted many social distancing and face mask restrictions: https://files.nc.gov/governor/documents/files/EO215-Lifting-COVID-19-Restrictions_0.pdf
  3. Players, parents, and spectators are no longer required to wear a face covering at Sabres events at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church.  However, the CDC still recommends that those people who are not fully vaccinated continue to wear face coverings and social distance as much as possible.  At any other venues, we will follow the rules of those locations.
  4. All players must have their own water bottles, towels, clothing, pinnies, etc. These should be labeled clearly and kept in a personal bag. This will cut down on contact spread.
  5. Hand sanitation is strongly encouraged when entering and exiting the building.  Hand sanitizer will be available at the entrance/exits and elsewhere in the gym.
  6. All uniforms must be laundered after each game and should never be shared.
  7. Each player must self-assess his or her current symptoms before attending a Sabres event with the checklist below.  However, we no longer require that an electronic form be submitted.
    • Do you have any of the following symptoms? If yes to any question, do not attend a Sabres activity for at least 10 days.
      • fever greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit
      • loss of smell or taste
      • chills
      • sore throat NOT related to another medical condition (like allergies)
      • cough NOT related to another medical condition
      • shortness of breath not related to another medical condition
      • Diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days
    • Do you have any of the following symptoms? If yes, do not attend a Sabres activity until you feel better.
      • Vomiting or diarrhea not related to another medical condition
      • Congestion or runny nose not related to another medical condition
      • Fatigue, muscle or body aches
    • Have you been in close contact (within 6 feet for over 15 minutes total cumulative over a 24 hour period) to any individual who was infected with COVID-19 at the time? If yes, quarantine for 7 days after exposure if you receive a negative COVID test or 10 days if you are not tested.

 This policy is subject to change per the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the State of North Carolina guidelines and regulations and/or as determined by the South Wake Sabres Steering Committee.
