Nova Scotia Cricket Association
Dated: April 20, 2021

Sub: Summer Cricket league of 2021 and COVID-19

Dear Players,

This notice is addressed to everybody who is a member and associated with Nova Scotia
Cricket Association (NSCA). As you may already know, NSCA has decided to resume
the 2021 summer league from the weekend of May 29-30. However, before starting the
league, we need players to be aware and appreciate both general government guidelines
and return to play protocols as drafted by the association. The “Return to Play Protocol”
(“Protocol”) for 2021 is attached to this letter and a copy of the general government
COVID-19 guidelines (“Guidelines”).

The NSCA also wants its players/members to know that anyone found violating the said
Protocols and Guidelines would not be allowed to participate and play in the league.
Further, the player/member in violation of both Protocols and Guidelines will be solely
responsible for his injuries and virus infection.

The players/members who receive this letter along with Protocols and Guidelines agree
to participate/ play in the summer league 2021 deems to waive his right to hold NSCA
responsible for his injury and COVID-19 infection. Neither NSCA nor its chair, along with
the executive committee are liable for any such injury and COVID-19 infection caused
during any of the matches of the summer league.

Below, NSCA highlights some of the Protocols and Guidelines. Please note that the
following list is not exhaustive, and the Protocols and Guidelines need to have complied
  1. Maintain social distancing as much as it is possible to do so.
  2. Every player must have a sanitizer and regularly sanitization of hands, playing
    equipment and the ball.
  3. No saliva on the ball.
  4. Limit physical contact with other players.
  5. No sharing of jerseys and other playing equipment.
  6. No unwanted meetings (hangouts) before or after the game.
  7. Keep committee and association informed about any contact with COVID-19
    patient or somebody who has the symptoms (fever, cough, respiratory issues, etc.).
  8. Keep committee and association informed if the player/member develops any
    symptoms of COVID-19.
We continue to observe the situation very closely, and no decision is/will be taken lightly.

We strongly believe that with cooperation between the players/members and the
executive committee of the NSCA, we will successfully commence and complete this
playing season.

We appreciate your support and cooperation.

Yours very truly,
Amit Joshi
Nova Scotia Cricket Association
