COVID-19
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)  3/21/2020 3:00 PM Update
COVID-19 is a new respiratory virus that causes flu-like illness ranging from mild to severe, with symptoms of fever, coughing, fatigue and difficulty breathing. The CDC and State Health Departments are working to detect, contain and limit the spread of cases in the U.S. should they occur. CDC and the State Health Departments are actively preparing doctors and hospitals on how to respond safely and effectively to COVID-19.
Events and mass gatherings can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States via travelers who attend these events and introduce the virus to new communities. Examples of events and mass gatherings to avoid include conferences, festivals, parades, concerts, sporting events, weddings, and other types of assemblies. *****FASA recommends canceling all Events scheduled before 4/15/2020. This date will be watched closely (daily) and will change on an as needed basis*****
When Events are allowed again they will fill quickly so FASA  recommends that you join the Events you wish to play in after 4/15/2020  before they reach capacity.
FASA will adhere to policies mandated by federal, state, and local governments. Some Tournament Directors in areas without severe restrictions are looking for alternatives to allow teams to play in smaller Events. Again, any play would follow the guidelines set forth by the governing bodies of the location where the Event is held.

Arkansas: Arkansas Department of Health gathering policy can be found on this link COVID

**FASA Leagues are encouraged to postpone the start of league play until April 15th. **
*The most important thing in dealing with this situation is to USE COMMON SENSE.* *If your player or any family members have a runny nose, fever, or cough-STAY HOME!* *Do not shake hands or fist bump others. *Do wash your hands often. If you feel uncomfortable about crowds, STAY HOME.
