The Floyd County Health Department [FCHD] has received complaints regarding events at the Floyd County Community Club that occurred during the weekend of June 7.

A local pay–to-play team was involved in several games, the results of which were published on the internet.  

An investigation is on-going.  

A previous issue regarding the organization was reported to a local Little League organization by the Floyd County Parks Department.

Under the stages plan of Indiana’s reopening, team sport league play may not resume until 14 June 2020.

Tournaments involving teams traveling from out of the county cannot start until after 3 July 2020, unless circumstances change as new cases are identified.

“Scrimmages” and inter-team events are considered league play and should not occur until after the 14th.

People that attended this event are at a heightened risk for COVID-19.  

The FCHD recommends that players, coaches, and families practice self-monitoring for the next 2 weeks.

If symptoms occur–including fever, chills, cough, diarrhea, muscle aches, and change in taste- please contact your Primary Care Provider or the FCHD for evaluation and testing.

“Floyd County has done an excellent job in its community response to the Coronavirus Pandemic,” said Maria Dodge. “We are enjoying a slow but steady decline in new cases.  However, we require the cooperation and compliance of all Floyd County residents to continue this trend and finish the restrictions to business and play.”
