COVID-19 Coronavirus Update
Additional Guidance on
Recommended Postponement of League Activities
In response to the global outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, the U.S. Center
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that all Americans
wash their hands frequently, self-isolate when they're sick or suspect they might
be, and start "social distancing" (essentially, avoiding other people whenever
possible) right away. To comply, many states have temporarily closed public
schools, and many businesses have advised employees to work from home if
possible. On March 16th, the CDC (cdc.gov) and the President’s Coronavirus
Guidelines (coronavirus.gov) both advised that all events and gatherings of 10
people or more should be canceled or postponed for the next eight weeks.
Based on the recent updates from the CDC, Dixie Youth Baseball strongly
advises our leagues to postpone all league activities including practices and
scheduled games until further notice. We urge DYB leagues to follow these
guidelines as our country works its way through this historic pandemic in an effort
to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Dixie Youth Baseball also recommends that our local leagues follow the
guidance of their local governments, school boards and local health department
recommendations before resuming regular season play.
We are optimistic about being able to resume play in the next few weeks
after we get clarity on the spread of the virus and treatment options. Currently Dixie
Youth Baseball is monitoring this situation and working on scenarios for our 2020
season.
