COVID-19 guidelines for public/private community recreational sport leagues

Gov. Eric Holcomb announced last week details regarding the latest stage of Indiana’s reopening plan, including the latest allowances for sports and outdoor activities beginning June 19.

The host or sponsoring venue MUST submit a COVID-19 response plan, outlining steps being taken to ensure social distancing and sanitation, to Dubois County Health Department to review at least 72 hours prior to the first event taking place. This plan must be posted publicly. The COVID response plan should include all precautions that are being taken to ensure overall protection of competitors, coaches,officials, staff, and spectators.

Practices, drills, conditioning, games, meets and tournaments can be conducted once the host has submitted a COVID response plan.

Each field/court/playing area is allowed up to 250 people. Social distancing must be possible in each seating area, hand sanitizer or other sanitation must be provided, and each site must have its own designated restroom facility.

According to Indiana’s “suggested Guidelines for Youth and Adult Recreational Sports and Facilities,” concession stands may NOT open.
