There was one notable change to the tier system: Tennis has now been split, singles tennis is in the purple tier and doubles tennis is in the red tier.

 

Additional guidelines were given for the outdoor sports that fall in the red and orange tier.

 

Outdoor High-Contact Sports (Football, Water Polo)

If our county adjusted case rate is equal to or less than 14 per 100,000 (as of latest update we are at 20.7) then we will be able to compete following these additional guidelines:

  • Informed Consent
  • Testing-antigen or PCR (regular and postseason antigen or PCR testing of sports participants and coaches weekly. If competing, testing performed with test results made available within 24 hours of play)

 

Outdoor Moderate-Contact Sports (Baseball, Softball, Tennis-Doubles)

If our county adjusted case rate is equal to or less than 14 per 100,000 (as of latest update we are at 20.7) then we will be able to compete following these additional guidelines:

  • Informed Consent

 

Indoor Sports

No update was provided for our indoor sports and no change in tiers for any of our indoor sports.

 

We will be working the NMUSD today and next week regarding this new information and will plan accordingly. All Orange Coast League schools will be communicating and working out league schedules based off this updated information.
