Dear San Francisco Youth Baseball League Community,
As health and safety precautions against the spread of COVID-19, the coronavirus, the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department is cancelling all SFYBL games and practices for the next three weeks, through March 31st.
We know your players are looking forward to getting onto the field to play ball, however, the health and safety of our program participants and their families are our top priority.
As we continue to deal with this evolving situation, we remind everyone to do their share in stemming the spread of this virus, per recommendations from the Department of Public Health. The best way for all San Franciscans to reduce their risk of getting sick, as with seasonal colds or the flu, still applies to prevent COVID-19:
Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
Cover your cough or sneeze
Stay home if you are sick
Avoid touching your face
Try alternatives to shaking hands, like an elbow bump or wave
If you have recently returned from a country, state or region with ongoing COVID-19 infections, monitor your health and follow the instructions of public health officials
There is no recommendation to wear masks at this time to prevent yourself from getting sick
We thank you for your understanding and wish you and your families good health in the coming weeks. We look forward to getting back on the field later this season.
