COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

The health and safety of our West Metro community is our number one priority. The information below represents the current precautions WMS is utilizing due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is subject to change over time as expert recommendations and regulatory guidance evolve (or until the government tells us otherwise).
 
On opening night, our board members will go over sanitization protocols and other need-to-know information with each team before games begin. West Metro Softball will ask all participants to sign an acknowledgement of protocols and a liability waiver on the first night of games.

MASKS

Masks will be highly encouraged while playing and in the park.

GAME BALLS

Each team will be given new game balls not to be shared with the opposing team

SANITIZATION

Sanitization stations will be set up at each field – bats and balls can be sanitized between innings.

DUGOUTS

Dugouts and equipment will be cleaned and sanitized between games. Time between games have been increased to allow for dugouts to clear fully before the next team plays.

SPECTATORS

Spectators will be asked to maintain social distancing by sitting or standing at least 6 feet from others not in their group. WMS strongly encourages 2021 spectators to bring blankets or chairs to prevent crowding in bleacher areas.

COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

Players or spectators that have or have had any of the following symptoms in the last 14 days must remain at home:

  • Fever (temperature at/above 100.4 °F [38 °C])

  • Dry cough or sore throat

  • Shortness of breath

  • Unusual aches and pains

  • Loss of taste or smell

QUARANTINE

Players or spectators who have tested positive or have come in to contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, must remain at home and observe a 14 day quarantine before returning to the field.
