Players, coaches, parents, spectators, referees, and other participants are not eligible to participate in GAA events if they have tested positive for COVID and should be in isolation, or are deemed a close contact and should be in quarantine, as specified by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Some town, city and regional Boards of Health as well as leagues may impose more restrictive measures for facial coverings for participants and spectators. If so, these restrictions take precedence.
The Georgetown Athletic Association takes participant safety very seriously. Any violations of our Participation Guidelines will result in a review by our committee, and may result in disciplinary action including the possibility of suspension from all GAA activities.
If you have questions about a particular sport's season, please contact that sport's Board Members. We encourage all to play safely and in line with state and local guidelines.
To reinforce health safety and best practices for illness prevention, please read the list below:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth prior to proper washing or disinfecting.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
