First Tee – Sandhills: Amendments to Safety Response to COVID – 19
In light of the most recent Executive Order amendments on November 25, 2020 announcement by Governor Roy Cooper; as well as follow up amendments made by the Carolinas PGA an Back2Golf initiative – we are implementing additional precautions to fall in line with these executive orders, most specifically as it relates to facial coverings.
Snippet from EO180:
Where Face Coverings Are Required:
(1) Individuals must wear face coverings if inside/indoors unless actively eating or drinking.
(2) Individuals five (5) years or older must wear face coverings in public outdoor setting if unable to maintain 6 feet of social distance.
Carolinas PGA & Back 2 Golf Update:
Individuals are permitted to ride together in a golf cart if they live in the same household without a facial cloth covering. If people who do NOT live in the same household are sharing a cart a facial cloth covering is required.
First Tee – Sandhills Face Coverings Procedure:
Using the above amendments as our guidelines, the below protocols will be put in place as it relates to Face Coverings Procedures during our upcoming programs:
- Check In & Check Out Staff person, Volunteer or Coach will continue to wear a Face Covering.
- Staff, Volunteer and Coaches will continue to wear a face covering when required to be indoors unless eating or drinking.
- Staff, Volunteer and Coaches will wear a face covering when providing pre-approved transportation to participants via a golf cart shuttle.
- Staff, Volunteer and Coaches will wear a face covering when unable to maintain 6 feet of social distance outdoors. For example, one to one conversation, providing first aid or emotional support during a group activity.
Youth age five (5) and older are asked to bring a face covering to class for use when necessary in coordinating situations as those outlined above. Please know we are unable to enforce the use of face coverings with participants and simply ask you cover these guidelines with your kiddos in advance of class, determining your families’ expectations of their behavior and procedures.
