Here is what was posted to Governor's website regarding recreation sports

after yesterday's press conference. look at the bullet just above total number of attendees that requires 10' distancing. I believe this makes soccer games not allowed in phase 3. i will also link the website

safer at home: phase three
recreational sports
scope: Indoor and outdoor recreational sports activities
phase 3: Recreational sports activities must either implement the
following mandatory requirements or must not take place.
Mandatory Requirements:
Participants and organizers of recreational sports activities must strictly adhere to the
physical distancing guidelines, enhanced cleaning and disinfection practices, and enhanced
workplace safety practices provided in the “Guidelines for All Business Sectors” document.
Participants and organizers of recreational sports activities must adhere to the following
additional requirements for such activities:
 Post signage at the entrance that states that no one with a fever or symptoms of
COVID-19, or known exposure to a COVID-19 case in the prior 14 days, is permitted
in the establishment.
 Post signage to provide public health reminders regarding physical distancing,
gatherings, options for high-risk individuals, and staying home if sick (samples at
bottom of this document).
 Indoor and outdoor recreational sports should maintain ten feet of physical distance
between all instructors, participants, and spectators, where practicable.
 The total number of attendees (including both participants and spectators) of
recreational sports cannot exceed the lesser of 50% of the occupancy load on the
certificate of occupancy, if applicable, or 250 persons. For sports played on a field,
attendees are limited to 250 persons per field.
 Ensure anyone who has symptoms of, has tested positive for, or has been exposed to
COVID-19 follows appropriate guidelines for quarantine or isolation. Persons with
symptoms should stay home until CDC criteria for ending isolation have been met.
Persons with severe symptoms may need to be evaluated by a healthcare provider.
Establish procedures for safely transporting anyone who is sick to their home or to a
healthcare facility. If you are calling an ambulance or bringing someone to the hospital, try
to call first to alert them that the person may have COVID-19.
 Conduct daily screening of coaches, officials, staff, and players for COVID-19 symptoms
prior to admission to the venue/facility. Children should be screened per the CDC
guidance for screening children. Adults should be asked if they are currently experiencing
fever (100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher) or a sense of having a fever, a new cough that
cannot be attributed to another health condition, new shortness of breath that cannot be
attributed to another health condition, new chills that cannot be attributed to another
health condition, a new sore throat that cannot be attributed to another health condition,
or new muscle aches that cannot be attributed to another health condition or specific
activity (such as physical exercise). Anyone experiencing symptoms should not be
permitted in the venue/establishment. Screenings should be conducted in accordance
with applicable privacy and confidentiality laws and regulations.
 All shared items must be disinfected between each use to the extent practicable.
