Clubs located in counties designated "Green" by Governor Wolf may conduct soccer activity.
CDC guidelines for COVID-19 must be followed during the "Green" phase as we continue to battle to limit the spread of the virus.
Gathering size in PA is adjusted by Governor Wolf (see 3/1/21 update)
- All capacity limits - 20% of max occupancy
- All capacity limit - 15% of max occupancy
The limits are based on standards set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Life Safety Code effective March 1, 2021.
- When no NFPA code capacity is published or available for outdoor events or gatherings venues, establish occupancy as 67 people per 1000 square feet and then apply the applicable maximum occupancy limit. Venues may also contact their local building code officials if they are unaware of their occupancy limit.
- Those from the same household may sit together; the grouping should be separated from others by at least 6 feet; implement best practices such as timed entry, multiple entry and exit points, pathways that allow for physical distancing, multiple restrooms, and hygiene stations; require attendees to comply with physical distancing requirements when not seated; and require attendees and workers to wear masks or face coverings.
PA West Soccer has also created Return to Play Plan to help clubs plan, prepare, and resume play. For printer friendly RTP Plan, click here.
