The following best practices are intended to offer guidance to our EDHSC community. Adherence to these considerations, recommendations, and responsibilities does not ensure immunity from exposure to COVID-19. EDHSC makes no representations and assumes no responsibility for individual activity or participation decisions by Associations, Clubs, Coaches, Parents, or Players.
This Policy is now in effect as public health authorities in El Dorado County have amended the stay-at-home order to allow small group activities (Stage 3).
EDHSC will be closely monitoring health guidelines and will remain up to date with best practices and procedures as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local public health officials, and our governing organizations.
Please contact the EDHSC Board of Directors with any questions or concerns. Thank you.
