Rochester Youth Football released a COVID plan to the registrants of our Spring NFL Flag Football League on April 22, 2021. After sending that communication out to everyone registered for our league, the MN Department of Health issued updated guidance for "Organized Sports Practice and Games Guidance for Youth and Adults". Based on the release of that new guidance, RYFA has updated the Mask Requirement & Social Distancing portion or our COVID plan. That plan can be read in detail at this link.
RYFA will follow the guidance from the MN Department of Health regarding masking for the Spring Flag Football League.
Face coverings are required to be worn when sports participants are not actively practicing or playing and cannot maintain physical distancing. Board members, coaches, and players that are not actively participating in practice or a game are required to wear masks.
Family members and non-participating spectators are asked to wear masks and to practice social distancing. Though this is an outside activity and spread out over several acres of fields, there is risk of exposure. People are asked to provide their own masks; additional disposable masks will be provided by RYFA. People are asked to not congregate in large numbers and to use common sense when interacting with each other. There will not be food or drink concessions during this season.
