To all, be blessed, be respectful, remember to VOTE,
STAY SAFE by encouraging all to practice COVID-19 protocols by minimally:
Wearing a mask in public
Watching social distance
Washing hands frequently
COVID-19, to say the least, has impacted our lives like nothing else has in our lifetime. We and our student athletes are anxiously waiting to get the ‘go ahead’ to play and compete in the sport we all so dearly love. The price will be a ‘new normal’, but only if we get everyone to follow the safety guidelines and protocols of our medical and science experts.
For now, this includes:
· Wearing a mask in public settings that covers our nose and mouth.
· Practicing social distancing.
· Washing our hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
· Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces.
Practicing these protocols gives us a chance to minimize the risk of COVID-19 and a chance to reduce the infectious level of the virus. But it will not, and cannot, happen without EVERYONE practicing safe protocols. So, let us all (coaches, student-athletes, athletic directors, administrators, educators, parents, families, friends, and whoever is within the sound of our voice or contact) to encourage each other to be safe and have a fighting chance to reach the ‘new normal’.
And, while we are at it, let us make an honest effort to respect and love one another.
Be blessed and stay safe.
This organization was formed to provide a platform for mutual interest, a place to settle disputes and a working ground for making modifications for the improvement of the caliber of basketball in the Chicago Public High School Basketball League.
