I write to you today to share an update from Laconia Little League in response to the concerns of COVID-19. Out of an abundance of caution, we've made the difficult decision to postpone all upcoming events through April 10. It has been recommended from The Little League International governing body that we suspend all activities for a couple weeks based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat.
Both Minor League and Major League tryouts that were scheduled for tomorrow at Laconia Middle School have been Postponed until April 11th. All other activities after April 11th will remain on schedule including Opening Day on April 25th. Online registrations will remain open until April 10th for those of you who haven’t registered yet.
The safety of our players and families is always our most important responsibility. Here are some suggestions from updated information from the DHHS and the CDC on how to reduce the risk of getting sick.
Get plenty of rest.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Cough or sneeze into your elbow if tissues are not available and NOT into your hands, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces.
Stay home from work or school if you have a fever or are not feeling well.
If you have a fever, you must be fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication (i.e. Tylenol, ibuprofen) before returning to school.
We will be monitoring the situation during this time and any updated information will be provided when we receive it. If anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out. Thank you for your patience and we hope to see all of you in the upcoming weeks.
