Update on Status for Big Willow

Big Willow Families,

 

In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and urging from local public officials regarding non-essential gatherings, we will be cancelling all our remaining clinics and practices through MAY 27.  This is an uncertain and rapidly changing situation, and we continue to prioritize the health and well-being of our players, volunteers and families. 

We will determine how this will impact other Big Willow events beyond this time frame, as we continue to monitor updates from the Minnesota Department of Health, CDC and our local schools and community youth programs. 

Please know that in our decision-making, we are accounting for both the health of our community members and the recognition of the impact this has on families and development of the youth participants.  With this, we will continue to assess alternatives with the goal of maintaining the continuity and integrity of our spring baseball program.  The board has discussed a fair and accurate process to evaluate players based on past experience as best as possible and will roster teams with coaches, division managers with the goal of having equal ability teams. 

Additionally, we would kindly ask parents and children to stay at home if you are feeling ill, and to please contact me (president@bigwillowbaseball.com) if you or anyone in your home plans to travel to a CDC-designated Level 3 country (or layover in an airport located in a Level 3 country).  

With this we have provided some helpful tips below.

We at Big Willow thank you for your continued partnership as we navigate this challenge together.

Trevor Knight

President, Big Willow Baseball Association

 

 

Preventing Illness

Public health officials recommend the following to reduce risk of any viral respiratory infection.

  • Stay at home if you are feeling ill.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid face touching, especially eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or cover mouth and nose with a tissue; throw it in the trash after single use and wash hands.
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid close contact with those who are sick.
  • Do not return to school or work until you have been fever and/or vomit-free for 24 hours.
