**UPDATE FROM DIRECTOR ROSE POWELL**

 

Hello everyone,

 

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been paying close attention to the developing health concerns related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). We care about your well-being and about providing a place for you to enjoy playing sports and socializing with your teammates. At this time, the CDC has asserted that the current health risk to Americans is low.

 

As such, all RCVC programs will continue as planned unless otherwise communicated by RCVC. 

 

We will continue to monitor CDC guidelines and keep you posted with any changes. Additionally, we are taking added precautions — engaging in regular deep cleaning and disinfecting — to help mitigate the risk. Should we decide to restrict usage, we will update you.

 

What Our Team is Doing

 

With our own coaches we are adhering to the CDC’s recommendations, including:

  • Encouraging all employees to practice respiratory etiquette, hand hygiene, and other precautionary measures that mitigate transmission.
  • Instructing sick employees to stay home and sending home any employees who appear to have acute respiratory illness (i.e., cough, shortness of breath).
  • We have deep cleaned the Launch Pad Gym and have disinfected all the Volleyballs. 
  • Making additional hand sanitizer available at practice also. 

 

 

Help Us Keep Members Safe and Take Appropriate Precautions

 

To ensure that RCVC remains a safe place to play, we encourage each of you to work with us in taking these important steps to protect yourself and the community at-large.

  • Do NOT attend your game if you are feeling ill, and please communicate with your teammates if you plan to miss the game. 
  • If your team is at risk of forfeiting due to illnesses, please reach out to the RCVC Director Rose Powell as soon as possible. We will be relaxing our rules regarding substitutions to reduce forfeits when possible. 
  • Do not feel obligated to participate in post-play/post-game handshakes during or after games. To be extra cautious, we recommend replacing open-handed high fives with daps/fist bumps (or smiles, waves, head nods, etc.).
  • Cover any cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve/elbow, not your hands.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly (for 20 seconds) before and after your game, or after any sneeze/cough. If soap and water are unavailable, use hand sanitizer.
  • Bring your own water bottle and avoid sharing it with others.
  • Routinely clean any surfaces/objects that are frequently touched (e.g., your phone). There are sanitizing wipes at each table for your use.

 

 

We’ll Keep You Updated

 

Your health and safety are extremely important to RCVC, and our goal is to ensure that we continue to be a safe place to play the sport you love. As we continue to monitor the latest CDC and WHO information on the Coronavirus, we will keep you updated on any changes to our operations or procedures.

 

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for taking this seriously and doing your part to keep calm and play on.

 

Sincerely,

Rose Powell
