  • For indoor events, mask wearing is required at all times for ages 2 and up.

  • For outdoor events, mask wearing is optional.

Masks

Following the CDPH and the Eastside Athletic League guidance, face masks guidance is as follows:

  • Masks are required indoors at all times for teachers, referees, officials, coaches, and other support staff.

  • Masks are required indoors for all spectators and observers.

  • Masks are required indoors at all times when participants are not actively practicing, conditioning, competing, or performing. Masks are also required indoors while on the sidelines, in team meetings, and within locker rooms and weight rooms

  • If masks are not worn due to heavy exertion (such as wrestling), individuals will undergo screening testing at least once weekly.  An FDA-approved antigen test, PCR test, or pooled PCR test is acceptable for evaluation of an individual's COVID-19 status.

  • For outdoor sports such as soccer, track and field, or cross country, mask wearing is optional while outdoors. Within indoor locker rooms and weight rooms, masks are mandatory.

These guidelines will be adjusted based on CDPH updates.
