NYBA COVID-19 Information

Please use an abundance of caution.  If any participants are not feeling 100% healthy, have them stay home!


As we start the 2022 season there are no official guidelines from our governing leagues or government officials on managing Covid-19.  With that being said we ask that if you are not feeling well, you say home.   Communication is key and so we ask that you communicate with your coach and/or league coordinator if you test positive for Covid-19 so that other participants who may be affected can be informed.   For those testing positive we would ask that they follow the Northfield School District guidelines for return to play: 

Isolation is required for any participant or coach who tests positive for Covid-19.  They must stay home until all of the following are met:

  • They feel better and symptoms have improved;
  • It has been five (5) days since they tested positive;
  • They have had no fever for at least 24 hours, without use of medication;
  • They have tested negative on Day 5 (or later) of their isolation.  No test is required for return after Day 10 of isolation.

Teammates, coaches and spectators who have been in contact with positive participants will not be required to isolate unless symptoms develop.

Masking is not required, but players may do so if they would like.  No limits on numbers of players in the dugout, spectators allowed at the park or requirements for disinfecting of equipment are in place any longer.

As a Board, we are committed to making the safest possible environment for our participants and spectators. Despite our best efforts (as acknowledged in pre-season waivers) there is inherent risk.  We appreciate and require the help/cooperation of NYBA Patrons and Employees to follow all recommendations and guidelines that are set out to make this season as successful as possible for everyone!
