From California Dep of PublicHealth -
- Face coverings to be worn when not participating in the activity (e.g., on the sidelines).
- Face coverings to be worn by coaches, support staff and observers at all times, and in compliance with the CDPH Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings.
From County of Los Angeles Public Health -
All participants are required to wear an appropriate face mask that covers the nose and the mouth at all times during practice, conditioning, play and competition, even during heavy exertion as tolerated to protect the safety of all participants. Exceptions to wearing a face mask are when the face mask may become a hazard, when in the water, while eating/drinking, or when engaging in solo physical exertion (such as jogging by oneself, alone). Participants must wear a face mask at all times when not engaged in practice, conditioning, or in play, including when on the sidelines during competitions. This applies to all adults and to children 2 years of age and older. Masks with one-way valves must not be used. Only individuals who have been instructed not to wear a mask by their medical provider due to a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing a mask are exempt from wearing one. Participants should take a break from exercise and/or remove their face mask if any difficulty breathing is noted and should change their mask or mask if it becomes wet and sticks to the participant’s face and obstructs breathing. Participants must remain physically distanced from others at any time their face mask is temporarily removed. Masks that restrict airflow under heavy exertion (such as N-95 masks) are not advised for exercise.
