As you all have probably seen, the Covid-19 numbers continue to go up and more counties are turning red! It continues to be very important that each association check with their county to determine if stricter guidelines are in place.
Today NCYSA was made aware the NCDHHS has made an adjustment to their November 23, 2020 document which provided guidance for the Governor’s Executive Order #180. For your consideration, we have included the original statement followed by the revision below:
The initial document read:
“wearing face coverings if they can be tolerated”
The revision reads:
“wearing face coverings unless an exception applies”
On the NC DHHS website, they define exceptions: "As under previous executive orders, several exceptions to the face covering requirement apply. For example, face coverings are not required for people under 5 years of age, people who have a behavioral condition or disability, or people who are actively eating or drinking.”
Disability: Some people may have trouble breathing or sensitivity to having something placed over their face. If you or someone you support is unable to wear a cloth face covering, be sure to take other steps to help avoid unnecessary exposure.

Please share this information with your coaches, players and parents. NCYSA continues to provide you with the most current recommendations available. Our hope is by working together our players can continue to play in a safe and healthy environment!
