COVID-19 League Update

Dear Parents, Coaches, Players, and Volunteers:

As you are all aware, there is a lot of media attention about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). As the Board of Directors for Chino Hills Little League, we wanted to take a moment to pass along some information and guidelines related to COVID-19. The Board of Directors is taking this issue with COVID-19 seriously and are continuing to monitor the situation, both locally and nationally. We are also maintaining communication with Little League Baseball with regards to player safety. An official update regarding COVID-19 from Little League Baseball can be found at the link below:

Although viruses can be scary, precautions can be taken to minimize the impact to our families and friends in the community. Per the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health (DPH), the health risk from COVID-19 to the general public in San Bernardino County remains low at this time. No cases have been reported in the county. More information from the Department of Public Health can be found at the link below:

However, we wanted to provide a summary of what you can do now to help protect your family, teammates and volunteers:

General guidelines:
• Wash your hands often (at least 20 seconds). If you cannot wash your hands, please use an alcoholbased hand sanitizer.
• Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth.
• Limit close contact with others, including shaking hands.
• Avoid close contact with those that are sick. If you or your child is sick, stay home. For little league play, Little League Baseball recommends the following:
• Tip hats/visors at the end of games instead of shaking hands.
• Make sure all players have their own water/drink bottles and are not sharing.
• Sanitize equipment and hard surfaces after use.
• If you are sick, stay home from practice and/or games until cleared by a medical doctor. Communication is key to any effort we make, so please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. We will continue to evaluate our response to this public health issue while working closely with our partners, both locally and nationally. We have also attached some guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control that provide general information about the virus and what to do if you get sick.

Thank you,
Michael Moore
