Discussion: COVID 19 SSUSA Rules

Posted Discussion

Hi and I hope everyone is safe. My team is looking for some clarification on the COVID 19 SSUSA rules specific to the following game rules:

Catchers wearing masks and someone on deck or assigned to pick up bats with gloves. I believe these are mentioned in your first Covid 19 rule changes back in April. I then read your SSUSA newsletter Volume 6 Edition 9 which states the following:
Game Recommendation

Players and coaches are instructed not to share equipment.
Softballs are to be kept in their original package until they are introduced into the game.
There will be a new ball for each game.
After a ball has been introduced into a game, it will be periodically sanitized.
Players and coaches are allowed to wear face protection (masks or face shields) during games and it is recommended that they wear face protection between games.
No seeds, chew, or spitting.
Umpires wear face protection (masks or face shields).

No mention of catchers wearing masks or the glove rule.

Which one applies?

Thanks for your help
