8B 2021-2022 Game Schedule
Regardless of vaccination status, all coaches and spectators are required to wear masks while in the gymnasium for game play.
In regard to players, when sitting on the benches, accommodations will be made such that all players will be positioned 6 feet apart and they all must remain masked. Masks must also be worn by all players during pregame warm up such as lay up lines etc.
CIAC winter guidelines now state that vaccinated players DO NOT have to wear masks during actual game play if they are on the floor competing. Masks are only required in this group pregame and when sitting on the bench. We will abide by these standards.
There is no restriction placed on the number of spectators permitted to attend games for a given player/family. However, each “family unit” must sit together in the same “pod” and remain masked. In addition, each “pod” should be seated at least 6 feet away from another group.
**Protocol for positive COVID-19 cases:
-if a child or coach tests positive for COVID-19 infection, they are out and in isolation for 10 days. Regardless of vaccination status, you cannot “test out” of a positive test result.
-if an unvaccinated player or coach is identified as a direct contact of someone who has tested positive, they are out for 14 days unless they can document a negative PCR test on day #8 or later. If the PCR test is negative, they may return on day #10
-vaccinated players and coaches that are considered a direct contact may return to play so long as they are asymptomatic and can provide a negative PCR test between days #3-5 AFTER the last time they were exposed to the positive individual.
