As the whole world struggles through these tough days with the Covid-19 virus, the Toledo Celtics Soccer Club is no exception. As we all know, Ohio State, Bowling Green State University, the University of Toledo, and many sporting events are closing as this being so highly contagious, the risk of putting our families and staff in harms way is too great. In order to prevent spread of germs and keep our players, families and coaches safe, we are going to cancel all of the indoor training, games, samba, friendlies and leprechauns for the next two weeks. We are closed effective immediately (3/12/20) through 3/26/20. We will inform you by 3/27/20 with any updates.
U.S. Soccer recommends the guidelines below.
With the increasing number of cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) being reported across the world, U.S. Soccer's leadership has reviewed and will continue to monitor all domestic programming and competitions. As part of this review, we are working closely in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and international agencies including the State Department, United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC), International Olympic Committee (IOC) and FIFA in real time to guide decisions on travel and participation. Our main priority is the safety and well-being of our players, coaches and referees and we will continue to update you as the situation requires.
Best Practices for Health
There is currently no vaccine to prevent the Coronavirus. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed. Everyday preventive actions should be taken:
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Follow the CDC's recommendations for using a facemask.
CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including Coronavirus.
Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms to help prevent the spread of the disease.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
