OSA FACILITY COVID GUIDELINES
At this point, we are in the “Green” phase of the governor’s Directive Health Measures, which allows 100% capacity for indoor gatherings. We still ask household units to remain six feet apart at all times. MASKS MUST BE WORN AT ALL OSA FACILITIES!
-OSA Staff: OSA staff goes through a mandatory COVID-19 prescreening prior to each of their shifts. They are required to wear masks at all times.
-Player/Spectator Screening: We ask that all those entering our facilities do their own screening at home and anyone showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 must not enter OSA facilities. For detailed guidance on home screening, go to www.cdc.gov/screening.
-Post-Game: There will be no handshake lines after the game, and post-game huddles will not be allowed.
-Sanitation Procedures: High touch point areas will be sanitized after every game.
-Basketballs: One Coach per team is allowed to bring three basketballs in a secured net or bag. Basketballs may be used from the start of warm-ups until the start of the game and then throughout half time. Absolutely no other basketballs will be allowed in the facility. Home team will provide the game ball, and we have sanitization materials available for coaches to sanitize the game ball before and after the game.
OSA LEAGUE AND TOURNAMENT COVID GUIDELINES
If a team member tests positive for Covid-19, they will not be allowed to participate OSA leagues and tournaments for the appropriate amount of time as recommended by the Douglas County Health Department. After this time, the player’s status must be reviewed by the team coach to determine when he can rejoin the team.
Upon consultation with the Douglas County Health Department and the Nebraska Association of Local Health Directors regarding teams with players who test positive for Covid, it has been determined that teams are clear to resume normal team activities for those who have tested negative or have not experienced any symptoms to date.
Although your team’s situation may be considered low risk, players and families are still advised to self monitor for symptoms. Any participant (player, coach, spectator, etc) who is showing signs and/or symptoms of Covid 19 should not enter any OSA Facilities.
