Coronavirus / COVID-19

Dear Parents, Players, Coaches, and Volunteers-

With the news of the continued spread of the novel coronavirus / COVID-19, I want to inform you that myself and the entire board of Upper Providence Little League is taking this situation very seriously. We are monitoring the situation closely and following guidelines and directions advised by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and the Montgomery County Department of Public Safety. The safety of our players and entire Little League community is, as always, our utmost concern. We will take action that is the best interest of the health and safety of our players and their families.

To help prevent the spread of infection, UPLL recommends the following:

  • If players, siblings, or parents are sick with shortness of breath, sneezing, coughing, or fever, do not come to practices or games.
  • Frequent hand-washing is the key to prevent the spread of the virus. After coming into contact with something that has been touched by other players - such as bats, helmets, and other equipment - wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or an alcohol-based cleaner. Wash your hands using soap and water or an alcohol-based cleaner for at least 20 seconds before and after using the restroom, before and after handling food, and before and after using public transportation.
  • Fist bumps and elbow bumps are a great way to show support while helping to prevent the spread of germs. Hugs, high fives, and chest bumps between players should be avoided.
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough and catch your sneeze in the crook of your arm or shoulder, not your hand, to avoid contaminating anything you touch.
  • Players who have a medical condition that places them at increased risk for infection, pneumonia, upper respiratory infection, or who have a medical history of lung/pulmonary disease, should contact their physician for recommendations and guidance.

As the situation continues to develop, we will try our best to keep you informed of any changes in event planning for our upcoming season.

If you have any questions regarding or concerns, please contact UPLL Safety Officer Lisa Osborne.
