The following information is being shared from a recent press release put out by the County of Marin regarding sports guidelines.
The County of Marin is aligning with State of California policy on youth sports activities under COVID-19 public health restrictions, effective March 3.
The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) provided updated guidance on organized youth sports and recreation on February 26, just a few days after Marin County moved from the most restrictive purple tier (signifying widespread risk of COVID-19) to the red tier (substantial risk) on the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. The freshened CDPH guidelines included rules for youth sports, including school and community-sponsored programs, and privately-organized clubs and leagues.
Starting March 3, team competitions are permitted if all state restrictions are followed. All team competitions are limited to teams located within Marin or counties bordering Marin that are in the same tier. The City/County of San Francisco achieved red tier status as of this week as is the only county adjacent county that qualifies. If the competitions meet the criteria, event organizers will not need to notify or seek approval from Marin County Public Health.
The state guidance also provides requirements for athletes, coaches, observers and how a competition may be conducted. As Marin County continues to progress through the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, the sports guidelines will dictate which sports will be allowed to be conducted indoors.
