COVID-19 Guidelines Update

March 15, 2021

Hello, Taylor Little League General Members, Coaches and Players:

With the issuance of Governor Abbott’s Executive Order GA-34, Williamson County Commissioner’s Court statement regarding GA-34, and the City of Taylor’s revised Mask Mandate, the Taylor Little League Board would like to provide guidance reminders to our members.

First, please continue to follow the guidelines for Practices and Games as posted on the Taylor Little League website.  https://www.taylorlittleleague.org/Default.aspx?tabid=2722908

Items of emphasis are (and everyone is probably already aware):

  • Washing hands frequently
  • Use of sanitizer when hand washing is not available
  • Maintaining distance of six feet away from those outside of your direct contact circle
  • Cleaning shared equipment
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Keep personal items clean
  • Monitor your health and the health of your participant regularly each day
  • Players NOT SHARING personal items, food, or drinks
  • Wearing face masks (from City of Taylor’s guidance)
    • “Please note that face coverings are a secondary strategy to other mitigation efforts.  Face coverings are not a replacement for social distancing, frequent handwashing, and self-isolation when sick.  All people are strongly encouraged to follow CDC recommendations for how to wear and take off a mask.  Residents should keep up the following habits (CDC guidance) while in public:
      • Washing hands before you leave home and when you return;
      • Staying at least six feet away from others;
      • Avoiding touching nose or face;
      • Not using disposable masks more than three times;
      • Washing reusable cloth masks regularly to prevent the spread of the virus;”
  • STAY HOME if you or a loved one is susceptible to dangerous symptoms of COVID-19

These guidelines, ESPECIALLY THE MONITORING OF HEALTH OF PARTICIPANTS AND PARENTS, resulted in positive prevention during the Fall 2020 season for Taylor Little League and ALL DISTRICT 30 leagues.  If your participant shows a change in their health or is possibly exposed to the virus, please refrain from participating in practices and games for seven days after symptoms have cleared or exposure to the virus.  If coaches or board members observe any symptoms that are concerning, Taylor Little League coaches and board members have the authority from the board to ask players or parents to leave an event.  The board believes this will never be the case since our parents did such a great job of holding kids back who did exhibit possible symptoms or who were exposed to the COVID-19 virus.  We were very proud as a board to see our league work together to ensure the safety of everyone using common sense.

Let us continue this trend and knock this out of the park for a healthy, successful season.

Thank you all.  Take care!
