COVID Procedures for Spring and Summer Softball

3/7/22: ABGSL continues to follow the policies of BUSD and AUSD.

At this point, ABGSL will not require masks for outdoor softball. Neither BUSD nor AUSD require masks for outside activities due to the rapid decline of cases and very low rate of hospitalizations and severe illness. 

Some people will still choose to mask for a variety of reasons. We are dedicated to respecting those individual or family decisions. 

Masks are still required for 10 days for those who had a known exposure to COVID-19. Those who test positive for COVID-19 are also required to wear a mask for 10 days, regardless of whether they test negative on the fifth day and qualify to exit isolation.

Families who are concerned are encouraged to wear masks, particularly N95 or KN95. We encourage families to talk with their head coach and team manager to ensure their player feels supported. You are also welcome to contact the league directly at president@abgsl.org.

Because a new surge could occur, we ask that the ABGSL community to be prepared that we may need to go back to requiring masking. 

Current Guidelines

People with COVID-19 should isolate for 5 days and if they are asymptomatic or their symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours), follow that by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others to minimize the risk of infecting people they encounter. 

If you have been exposed to Covid-19: 

  • Individuals who have received their booster shot do not need to quarantine following an exposure, but should wear a mask for 10 days after the exposure.  For all those exposed, best practice would also include a test for SARS-CoV-2 at day 5 after exposure. If symptoms occur, individuals should immediately quarantine until a negative test confirms symptoms are not attributable to COVID-19.
  • For people who are unvaccinated or are more than six months out from their second mRNA dose (or more than 2 months after the J&J vaccine) and not yet boosted, CDC now recommends quarantine for 5 days followed by strict mask use for an additional 5 days.
