Health and Safety Policies

Health Advisory

Mask mandate has been lifted in Framingham for schools. It is mask optional in general.

Teams traveling from counties with different health measures we would appreciate the following:

  • If any member is not feeling well with any covid-like symptoms, please stay home
  • If close contact with Covid-positive person, follow current CDC guidelines for isolation and quarantine.
  • Frequent hand washing is advised
  • Wearing masks in densely populated areas where social distancing can not be attained (such as bleachers in the gym) is advised
  • Wear masks for interviews with judges and when other teams are coming to scout or prepare for upcoming matches

 

 

We believe it is good to stay vigilant as Covid is still an issue in the tri-state region. Mask wearing is an effective mitigation strategy.
