Submitted By Jen Dosman on Sat 03 14, 20
Please see the following media release from Baseball Ontario regarding coronavirus (COVID‑19).

To the Baseball Ontario Community (March 13, 2020), 


Baseball Ontario considers safety a core value of our organization, and as such we continue to monitor the evolving impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID‑19).

While the situation regarding COVID-19 is fluid, Baseball Ontario has implemented the following precautionary measures:

Level 3 Umpire SuperClinics:

SuperClinics will be cancelled. Level 3 umpires will certify via an online exam as they did in 2019. The Exam will be made available March 23rd, and payments already received will be transferred to exam registrations.


Level 1 & Level 2 Umpire Clinics:

As of Monday, March 16th, there will be no in-person Level 1 & 2 clinics for the remainder of this season. We will introduce online training so that certification can be achieved for 2020. More details will be shared by April 3rd.


Coaching Clinics:

As of Monday, March 16th, there will be no in-person clinics for the remainder of this season. We will introduce online delivery of coaching clinics so that certification can be achieved for 2020. More details will be shared by April 3rd.


At this point in time, plans are still to run with our regular outdoor activities as usual when baseball season begins in May.

With regards to indoor activities, Baseball Ontario is not requiring the cancellation of any activities but advises as follows:

  1. Any particular group, which feels that it is appropriate to cancel its indoor events, may do so.
  2. Any individual who does not feel safe in attending any particlar eventis encouraged to stay home.
  3. If people do not feel well with flu, cold-like symptoms to please stay at home and contact your health care professional as soon as possible.     
  4. Inquire with your people to determine if they have travel plans outside of Ontario during March and April.
  5. DO NOT shake hands or exchange High 5s, etc. (no hand to hand contact) at any events.
  6. Consider making hand sanitizers available at your events.

A reminder that at this time, verified information indicates that COVID-19 spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The following precautions are recommended:

-wash your hands frequently

-avoid contact with people who are sick

-avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
-
cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or into your elbow (not your hands)
-
contact your health professional if you exhibit symptoms associated with the virus
