Updated COVID Protocol

The State of IL updated the Phase 4 - DCEO All Sports Guidelines for Covid Mitigation.

The largest change is related to high risk and low risk sports related as to which sports can remove masks.

Minimum Guidelines

-Participants in low risk sports (baseball/softball, tennis, archery, fishing and track and field) can remove masks when they can social distance. When teams are in the dugouts, huddling, etc., masks need to be worn.

https://www.dph.illinois.gov/covid19/community-guidance/sports-safety-guidance

A document that the Park District is providing is on the FBB Documents Link regarding the updated guidelines for sports and the current guidelines for other assembly groups.

  • Mask wearing at Park District facilities is required unless you are eating or drinking or participating in a low risk sport as outlined below.
  • Individuals that are vaccinated are NOT exempt from wearing masks

Bridge Phase
As Illinois moves towards our new normal, the State of Illinois administration is outlining clear metrics and
mitigations that will allow the State to gradually reopen. For more on the bridge to Phase 5 & expanded capacity
limits in Phase 4 visit the website below.
https://dceoresources-ss-assets.s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/public/Restore-Illinois/A-Bridge-to-Phase-5.pd


All Sports Guidelines

  • Low risk sports, when played outdoors and social distancing can be provided, need not wear a mask.

That includes; baseball/softball, fishing, tennis, archery, and track & field. When players or athletes are

not engaged in play such as when on the bench, in a huddle masks must be worn.

  • All spectators and athletes must wear a mask unless it poses a risk or they are in low risk sport. This is

for outdoors and indoor play. The figure below illustrates how to determine the mitigation for each

sport. The figure is taken from the IDPH DECO All Sports Guidelines provides an illustration. The sports

that fall in that group are represented in the image at the top.

  • The language used in the IL DCEO Sports Guidelines suggests that Covid Testing should be done for higher

risk sports, including participants, coaches, trainers and officials. Testing does not apply for those

younger than 13 and those fully vaccinated.

Joseph Scaletta

Our deepest condolences go out to the Scaletta Family. We mourn the loss of a long time and current board member of Frankfort Baseball, Joseph Scaletta.  Joe was a long time Board Member even before since his son Sam started in 2007. Joe worked tirelessly at almost every level and the latest being at the upper levels of Pony/Colt/Palomino/Collegiate.  He was instrumental in Frankfort Baseball joining SWILA as well as coordinator of the Frankfort Baseball Scholarship program with Lincoln-Way East and area high schools.  Joe's pride and joy was Borg Warner field.  He worked endless at its upkeep.  If we had a tournament, you would have seen Joe there volunteering.  Joe loved baseball especially Frankfort Baseball.  Outside of baseball Joe was the Co-Founder of Scaletta Armoring in Bedford Park, IL. Private family funeral services will be held at Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic Church on December 1, 2020. Funeral Information: Cumberland Chapels, 708-456-8300 or www.cumberlandchapels.com.

Memorial contributions can be made in memory of Joseph V. Scaletta to Frankfort Baseball online here or you can mail a check to Frankfort Baseball, P.O. Box 261, Frankfort, IL 60423.
