For immediate release: March 14, 2020

Dear First Tee Central Coast Family and Friends,

First and foremost, we care about YOU…our participants and their families, our chapter’s coaches, employees and volunteers. Like many of you, we are monitoring the rapidly changing developments with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), including what trusted organizations like Centers for Disease Control, World Health Organization, our local school districts and local health administrators are saying. Given the current situation, we have decided to cancel the remainder of our winter session (for sites that still have classes remaining) effective immediately.  Our coaches will find a way to provide make-up classes for any of our sites whose session is being cut short.

At this time we also plan to delay the start of the Spring session to the 1st week of May at all Central Coast locations.  We will adjust accordingly if and when more information is available.  I will update our website with Spring Session adjustments as things unfold over the next few weeks.

We will continue closely monitoring the situation and evaluating our internal procedures to ensure we are able to provide a safe and healthy learning environment, and to meet the stringent guidelines provided by the CDC.  During this down time our staff and coaches will be working hard on developing new lesson plans, fundraising and other endeavors to ensure that our spring session can be even more engaging and we hope to provide the best possible experience for all of our participants.   We sincerely hope you will all choose to join us this Spring!

Thank you for your understanding and for being a part of our First Tee of Central Coast family.  On behalf of our staff, coaches  and Board of Directors, we are very grateful to all of you for your continued support.

Please be safe and stay healthy!

What can you do?

Following the advice of health professionals, please note the steps below that we can all take to help prevent the spread of a safe learning environment. The best steps you can take are the same ones that help prevent most general respiratory illnesses, like the flu.

  • Getting plenty of sleep
  • Exercising
  • Drinking plenty of fluids
  • Eating nutritious food
  • Managing stress levels
  • Wash hands often and with soap
  • Avoid touching eyes, ears and mouth
  • Staying home when you are sick
  • Avoiding close contact with those who are sick
  • Cleaning & disinfecting surfaces
  • Covering mouth and nose with tissue when coughing or sneezing.

Even with all the best effort, sickness can still happen. Here are the guidelines on when to stay home:

  • Fever (greater than 100 degrees).
  • Experiencing vomiting, diarrhea, or chills
  • General fatigue, discomfort, weakness or muscle aches
  • Frequent cough
  • Nasal congestion with frequent blowing of nose
