COVID 19 Vaccination Policy
After careful consideration and in-step with the North American Gay Volleyball Association (NAGVA), the Board of LSVA has decided that all players will be required to show proof of full vaccination against COVD-19 by October 11, 2021 in order to play during LSVA-sanctioned events including Open Play, Skills Clinics, Evaluations and League Play. This added protection will be in conjunction with our continued mask mandate which is currently in place.
Presently, the CDC defines fully vaccinated as being a minimum of 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna, & AstraZeneca) or one dose of the single-dose vaccine provided by Johnson & Johnson. To confirm your vaccination status, we ask that you please bring a physical or digital copy of your CDC-issued vaccination card to our Monday Open Plays beginning September 13th for the Director of Registration or his designees to visually inspect and mark complete under your profile.
We take privacy very seriously and have no desire to store any record of your CDC-issued card on our systems. We will simply have a yes/no box that we will check. Like all sensitive data on our website such as credit card information, individual ratings scores, etc, your information is safe and accessible only by the highest levels of our Board, a group that is prohibited from disseminating any information and has access only for administrative and planning purposes.
This decision in no way is designed to be punitive against players who may not have been vaccinated yet, rather we have set the date of October 11th to allow for anyone who wishes to get vaccinated the appropriate time to do so. For more information on where to get vaccinated in Harris County or medical information on the various vaccines, please see the links below.
This time last year, during some of the darkest days of the pandemic, it was hard to imagine we would be able to play our beloved sport again. The miracle of modern science has provided us an opportunity to finally move beyond the past 18 months, but this miracle only works if we all do our part and roll up our sleeves to protect our loved ones, our friends, and our teammates on the court. Please send any questions to email@example.com.
