Safety Precautions & COVID-19 Information

To comply with the Governor’s Forward Virginia Phased Plan regarding recreational sports, city officials released information on the COVID-19 safety rules and procedures in place.

Adults accompanying minors should use the adult’s best judgment with respect to placing face coverings on a minor between the ages of two through nine while inside the clinic facility.

For all participants age 10 and up, masks must be worn when entering the facility but may be removed while participating.

Everyone entering the facility will be asked health screening questions regarding COVID-19 symptoms, and temporal no-touch body temperature scans will be taken. No one with a temperature at or above 100.4 degrees will be permitted in the clinic facility.

Everyone entering the clinic facility will be required to maintain 10 feet of social distancing between non-family members where practicable.

In order to reduce the number of people in the facility, participants and their families will be required to remain outside of the clinic facility until it is time for their age group session to begin.
