Mask Requirements & Exemptions

By Lora Meier 01/11/2021, 9:30pm CST

There have been many questions about face mask requirements and why we require them.  ERGYB has to follow the guidelines of the district in order to use the district facilities.  ISD728 has adopted the guidelines set by MYAS/MYBA which has face coverings/masks required at all times, this includes practices, games, or competitions.  MYAS/MYBA have recently updated their exemption guidance for face coverings/masks.  Exemptions are given to individuals who have medical conditions, disabilities, mental health, developmental, or behavioral needs that make it difficult to wear a mask or face covering.  Exemptions must be obtained in writing from a licensed medical professional who is registered, licensed, certified, or authorized by the state to provide medical treatment and practicing within the person’s medical training and scope of practice.

ERGYB will honor all exemptions that meet the MYBA/MYAS requirements.  The following information is required by Community Ed and ERGYB before the exemption will be recognized:

  1. Name of player, name of coach, and location and times of practice(s).
  2. Completed ISD728 Face Coverings Exemptions Form for Medical Reasons.
  3. The Coach must have a physical copy of exemption.
  4. ERGYB’s COVID Compliance Manager (CCM) must also have a copy of the exemption and completed ISD728 exemption form (these can be electronic copies) – ERGYB’s CCM is Becky Langley (Becky.pheasantacresgolf@gmail.com)
  5. Before tournaments ERGYB/coach is responsible for notifying the hosting organization of a player with an exemption.

Tournament Schedule Updates

Cancellations and Additions

The board has decided to cancel the Rochester tournament this year, held the weekend of February 20-21.  With the COVID restrictions put into place by the Kahler Inn and the uncertainty of the day(s) of play and number of spectators allowed for the tournament ERGYB has decided to skip Rochester this season.  Instead everyone will play at the STMA tournament that weekend.  ERGYB knows that Rochester is a season favorite and understand that there will be many disappointed players and parents but feel this is the best decision for our organization.  ERGYB will notify the Kahler Inn of our decision, would recommend that if you have already booked your room you cancel it.   

The Centennial tournament the weekend of January 30 - 31 has been added for all teams except 5 Black.
