                                      (Subject to change based on CDC or State of NH guidelines)

 

Dover Youth Softball League wants all its participants, and their families remain as healthy as possible for a safe and enjoyable season. DYSL believes the commonsense approach is if you are not feeling well then please stay home and do NOT attend a scheduled event. This helps ensure the good health of other teammates, players, coaches, et. al. who are associated with the program. Return to the field when assured you are healthy. The league advises all players, coaches, parents, and spectators to follow the CDC guidelines for Covid -19 should they encounter the virus. If you’re still unsure, please contact a league Division Director for more info.

Currently, those guidelines are:

Calculating Quarantine

The date of your exposure is considered day 0. Day 1 is the first full day after your last contact with a person who has had COVID-19. Stay home and away from other people for at least 5 days.

Calculating Isolation

Day 0 is your first day of symptoms or a positive viral test. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms developed or your test specimen was collected. If you have COVID-19 or have symptoms, isolate for at least 5 days.

DEFINITIONS

Exposure

Contact with someone infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in a way that increases the likelihood of getting infected with the virus.

Close Contact

A close contact is someone who was less than 6 feet away from an infected person (laboratory-confirmed or a clinical diagnosis) for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period. For example, three individual 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes. People who are exposed to someone with COVID-19 after they completed at least 5 days of isolation are not considered close contacts.
