When taking the field, we recommend players mask unless it’s intolerable. Coaches must always mask while on the field or in the dugout.
Umpires- must always mask during play.
Bunkhouse- Sleeping in the bunkhouse, some parents have asked if their player can stay off site with them. That is allowed however they must sign them out to leave the Player Village and back in at least one hour prior to game time or whenever the head coach decides depending on the teams plans for that day. Teams should function like one family (cohort) stay together, don’t go into other team’s bunkhouse rooms, social distance (six feet apart) from other teams, use your mask to move about the Player village.
Showers- shower with swim trunks, we recommend using your mask to and from showers back to bunkhouse. Don’t mask while in the shower.

That’s good news for all of us but, we must still respect the science and follow the rules of our state.
