*In light of the current monkeypox outbreak, DGLFFL is taking proactive steps to address any safety concerns with the participation in the 2022 Fall Season.*
First and foremost, we want to maintain safety and encourage practices protecting the health of participants, spectators, and members of our community. We also want to ensure the continuity of operations during this public health emergency recognizing the vital role our community has in the lives of our DGLFFL family.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): Monkeypox is spread through:
Monkeypox can be acquired by all people, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. Monkeypox causes a distinct rash and other symptoms, such as fever, headache, swollen lymph nodes and fatigue. Monkeypox can spread from the time symptoms start until the rash has fully healed and a fresh layer of skin has formed. This can take several weeks.
We ask all participants and spectators to cooperate in taking steps to reduce the likelihood of transmission of monkeypox in our community.
Participants and spectators are reminded of the following:
DGLFFL will provide alcohol-based hand sanitizers on the fields during play. It is critical that individuals do not participate while they are experiencing symptoms of the monkeypox virus.
Currently, the CDC recommends that individuals remain at home until the rash has healed, all scabs have fallen off and a fresh layer of intact skin has formed. Please contact the email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
DGLFFL is the home of Colorado's premier 7-on-7 flag football league. Established in June 2008, the DGLFFL is one of the largest flag football leagues of its kind in the United States with 20 teams and over 300 players.
Our mission is to foster community through sport and to promote positive social and athletic enjoyment of flag football among the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and straight allies living in the greater Denver area.
