We’re super excited that effective immediately, masks are no longer required for any players or coaches at training or games!
This follows the WA State DOH document outlining the new mask requirements effective today. At the bottom of page 2, you will find the specific bullet point for outdoor training or competition in any type of sport:
Exceptions to General Face Covering Requirement
People are not required to wear face coverings in any of the following situations:
- When outdoors. People who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are encouraged to wear face coverings in crowded outdoor settings, such as at sporting events, fairs, parades, concerts, and similar settings where there is decreased ability to consistently maintain physical distance between non-household members;
- At a small indoor gathering in a place not generally open to the public that is attended only by people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and by unvaccinated people from a single household in which no one is at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19;
- While engaged in indoor training or competition in any type of sport designated by the Department of Health or in outdoor training or competition in any type of sport;
We want to thank you for following our COVID policies over the past 16 months and supporting our players and coaches.
