Evergreen School District COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

According to current California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidelines, face mask requirements apply for settings including sports. Indoors, masks must be worn. Outdoors, vaccinated people are encouraged to wear masks during activities that involve sustained close contact including high-risk contact sports with other people who are not fully vaccinated. Outdoors masks may be removed temporarily during strenuous activity where the mask creates a potential choking hazard or the effectiveness of the mask may degrade (i.e. sweating through the mask).

Athlete and coaching staff safety are a priority. No spectators will be allowed for any indoor or outdoor events on Evergreen campuses. 

Indoor and Outdoor Youth Recreation and Extra Curricular Activities include ALL events and activities supervised by the school or district office that occur on ALL Evergreen School District campuses, whether or not they occur during school hours. This includes, but is not limited to sports, clubs or social gatherings.

These guidelines will be adjusted based on CDPH updates.
