We seem to be seeing an increase in covid-related quarantines, contact-tracing events and team drops. The RMR would like to encourage all of you to employ whatever mechanisms that YOU, YOUR PLAYERS and YOUR FAMILIES can do, to stay safe, stay engaged in sport, and stay on court.
What can you do?
GET VACCINATED! For information on who is eligible, and where free vaccinations can be obtained, see the CDPHE VaccinationPage
And of course, athletes and their families should be ever-vigilant for covid symptoms among not only our players, but also their siblings, friends, parents, co-workers. "If you see something, DO something." Individuals who have been exposed should go to quarantine. People who test positive or show symptoms should go to isolation. For more information, review the health information (HERE).
What else? Club Directors, Site Hosts, Referees and Coaches can and should serve as our "safety screen" by employing all best practices on a daily basis, and at all venues. Take temperatures every day. Look for symptoms. Talk to your players. Encourage the self-reporting that will keep us all safe!
In many of our communities FREE COVID TESTING is available, hosted by local government and other vendors. Let's all try to take advantage of this important tool! "Best practice" might be to get your entire team tested each week... maybe on Thursday.
Wouldn't it be great to know that everyone in the gym is covid-free?
