Allegiance Field Hockey is closely monitoring the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation focusing on the well being and safety of our community.
Our winter and spring season will no doubt be affected but for the well being of all involved and to do our part to help contain possible community spread, we will resume when it is deemed safe.
We are committed to providing a safe playing environment and we are regularly monitoring the recommendations and guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local authorities.
We are asking everyone to read carefully the best practices instructed by the CDC as well as to keep yourself informed (see below). In addition, we are asking our players, coaches, and any family members to please stay home if they have a cough, cold or fever of any kind, or if they think that they may have been exposed to someone potentially infected with the Coronavirus, flu, strep, or other cold-like symptoms.
Best practices instructed by the CDC for illness prevention:
Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
Stay home when you are sick
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty
If anyone associated with a team (coach, player, family member) becomes ill and has symptoms such as coughing, fever, or general malaise, please contact a medical professional; to reduce exposure, consider self-isolation until evaluated by medical personnel; immediately exit the facility; do not come into personal contact with other participants
We appreciate everyone's support, understanding and flexibility as we head into these next few weeks.
