We have posted HERE an important memo about COVID and the upcoming travel season (prepared in collaboration with the Belmont Board of Health). We ask all BYBA families to review this carefully.
Here is a short summary of key points:
Based on our current understanding, BYBA travel teams will likely play against some teams who are unmasked in games outside of Belmont.
If a player or coach is confirmed to be exposed to COVID-19, s/he will be required to quarantine for 7 days if unvaccinated with families responsible for conducting a COVID test on the 5th day post-exposure. Belmont Public Schools will require families to provide proof of negative PCR test results before exposed children will be allowed to return to school. "Test and Stay" does not apply to events outside of school, like basketball.
Fully vaccinated individuals are exempt from quarantine and should be vigilant about monitoring for potential symptoms for 14 days after exposure.
Again, we encourage you to read the entire memo so you have a full understanding.
If this information changes your interest in participating in Travel Basketball for 2021-2022, please let us know no later than Saturday, October 16th so we can adjust teams accordingly.
