Gov. Steve Sisolak’s office released guidelines Wednesday evening allowing “contactless” youth sports practices to proceed outside. The governor’s office also released specific guidelines for soccer, baseball and softball practices.
The guidelines, developed with the state’s Local Empowerment Advisory Panel, call for health care screenings before practices and “rigorous” cleanings of equipment, according to a news release. The guidance appears to prohibit official youth sporting events, only allowing “spectator-less outdoor practice sessions.”
The guidance requires coaches and managers adhere to social distancing. Coaches are also required to use face coverings and players are asked to wear face coverings when they are not practicing.
