Dear WYB Family:
WYB is constantly practicing social distancing during all events at our fields and want to make sure we are keeping up with all current mandates from the state, county and city. Because of Wednesday’s mandate from Governor Wolf, we are now requiring all adults on our fields to wear masks when they cannot be 6 feet from players. Any player that chooses to wear a mask while playing or practicing is at the discretion of that player/family. We are also recommending that anybody outside of the field (spectators) wear a mask. Everybody has been doing a great job with this and we understand the frustration and complexity that is involved here. WYB has to do its part to make this work, the only alternative is to cancel the season.
In addition, WYB is implementing the following rule related to vacations out of the area: Until further notice, any player or volunteer that leaves to vacation outside of the tri-state area of Pennsylvania, Ohio or West Virginia must be quarantined from any WYB practice or game for five consecutive days and nights upon return to Washington. After the quarantine period is over, you will then be temperature checked for two weeks upon return to our league. WYB has supplied each field with infrared thermometers to monitor this. These players and volunteers will have their temperature checked before each practice/game for two weeks. If these players/volunteers have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher, that person must stay home until their temperature is below 100.4 degrees per the CDC guidelines.
This policy is in effect as of today (July 2, 2020) and we will update and inform everybody if anything changes.
WYB is committed to keeping our players and volunteers safe at all times. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. We will continue to keep you updated.
Your WYB Council
