Hello Eastlake Little League Players and Families,

Please see the statement from Little League International regarding the Corona Virus. ELL and Little League International are dedicated to making the safety of your children a top priority.

Full Statement can be accessed here:

From Little League International:
We encourage all those that are actively participating in their Little League seasons – including players, volunteers, families, and fans – to follow the best practices as outlined by the CDC, which include washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (if soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer); avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands; and avoid close contact with people who are sick. We would also encourage you all to limit close, physical contact with others (including shaking hands). Click here to learn more about the CDC recommendations.

Leagues should consult the appropriate county and/or local authorities regarding recommendations on how to proceed with large gatherings of people.

Also, if you or your child are ill; have a fever, cough, or respiratory condition; have a compromised immune system; are in any other group that may be at an increased risk of contracting a virus like the coronavirus; or have recently traveled to a country listed on the CDC’s Risk Assessment by Country, we encourage you or your child to refrain from Little League-related activities until cleared by your healthcare provider.

Hand washing and not touching your face or eyes are the best preventative measures! And please stay home if you are sick!

Stay well ELL!
Eastlake Little League
