Moderate- and high-contact sports, including cheer, baseball, football, soccer, and water polo, may now resume in Riverside County. The state issued new sports guidance recently allowing certain moderate- and high-contact sports to begin in counties with an adjusted case rate of 14 cases or fewer per 100,000 residents. Riverside County’s adjusted case rate dropped to 11.3, the state announced on Tuesday. The new guidance also applies to adult recreational sports teams.
“As our numbers improve and kids are getting back in school, we can now start expanding their athletic opportunities as well,” said Dr. Cameron Kaiser, Riverside County public health officer. “We know our coaches are just as committed to safety as we are, and we can make this work.”
Athletic programs must obtain informed consent from the parents or caregivers on the risks of transmission by participating in the sport. In addition, weekly COVID-19 testing for all players and coaches is required for specific groups. Tests and results must be available within 24 hours of competitions.
Competitions between different teams will be allowed if both teams are within Riverside County or a neighboring county that also has an adjusted case rate of 14 or less where that sport is also permitted. Teams are only allowed to play one game per day.
Youth sports may include observers who are immediate household members during practice and competition. Physical distancing and face coverings must be maintained. Spectators are not permitted for adult sports at this time.
