Organized Sports Update and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

 

San Benito County, California June 24, 2020:

Organized contact sports with coaches and athletes from different households increase the potential for exposure/spread of COVID-19.  To date, the State has not released any specific guidance around organized sports for youth and/or adults.  Such sports include but are not limited to basketball, baseball, soccer, and football that are held at parks, fields, open areas, and courts. At this time, these types of sports are only permitted within members of the same household.

The County has continued to work with the State regarding guidance and questions concerning organized sports.  It should be noted, playgrounds and/or high touch areas shall remain closed, i.e. picnic tables, BBQ areas, etc.
