A Message from Athletic Director Tim Swartzendruber

15 January 2021

The KJCCC developed guidelines and protocols for athletics this spring. I am highlighting items I felt might be of interest. .

• Each school will do daily COVID screenings
• Schools will send weekly updates of COVID results to Commissioner
• There will be mandatory game day screening which includes screening for the school before they depart for a contest and when they arrive at their destination. This screening must take place within six hours of the contest.
• Athletic Trainers or Administration will do game day screenings for both their school and visiting school
• Officials will complete screening prior to leaving for contest and will get screened when they arrive
 • Institutions must report positive COVID results within 24 hours to Commissioner
• Athletes who test positive must complete a Return to Play form and follow protocol following their isolation
• Individuals who access competition area are required to wear a face covering, other than student-athletes and officials who are currently engaged in competition. Student-athletes, coaches and other team personnel in bench area must have a mask on while not currently engaged in competition.
• Those seated at score table must wear a face covering at all times, including the public address announcer
• No fans will be allowed to attend contests through February 5.

On February 1, a KJCCC President/AD meeting will occur and reconsideration will be given to this policy.

Please check our athletic website: www.gobeaversports.com for up to date information on schedules and other. We will be streaming all contests starting next Friday with a men's basketball game. Thank you for your support and understanding!
