Baseball Update November 23 2020 – Return To Phase 3 and Community Travel

November 23, 2020

Dear NSBA Players and Families,

Here is the latest baseball update from Baseball BC.

Please note effective immediately, after clarification provided today during the Provincial Health Officer Press Conference, Baseball BC is adjusting the recent restrictions to our RTP Guidelines and will now permit INDIVIDUAL travel outside of your home community for team sanctioned events.

Additional restrictions / requirements and measures have also been implemented as a result of new Provincial Health Officer Orders issued on November 19, 2020 in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Orders issued are for a two-week period ending at midnight on Monday, December 7, 2020. These Orders are open to extension by order of the PHO.

Additional restrictions / requirements and measures required at this time are as follows:

  • Spectators are not permitted.
    • This means no spectators at any games, competitions, training, or practice.
  • Masks are required in all indoor public settings.
  • Strength training and dryland training are not permitted, unless there is a COVID-19 Safety Plan is in place for this type of activity that is strictly followed (see Regional Health Authority for your local requirements).

Please also be reminded of the following:

  • Verbal symptom screening and attendance tracking must be performed daily.
  • Stay home if you’re sick.
  • 2m physical distance required between participants at all times.
  • All government expectations and requirements to be met, including viaSport Phase 3 Guidelines and the current PHO Orders.

All member groups and local associations are also required to review the new PHO orders and review and revise respective COVID-19 Safety Plans and policies and adapt where necessary.

Finally, we would like to remind all organizations that local municipalities may have additional requirements and are encouraged to check with all their facility partners and municipalities for any other requirements.

Please note Baseball BC will continue to monitor provincial health orders and direction from viaSport as they are made available and base all future programming adjustment decisions as required.

Sincerely,
Board of Directors
North Shore Baseball Association
