    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Lightning Safety

Thunderstorms and lightning can occur year-round and at all hours. However, they are most likely to happen in the spring and summer months during the afternoon and evening hours.

Lightning’s behavior is random and unpredictable. Preparedness and quick response are the best defenses towards the lightning hazard. It is important to make yourself aware of basic lightning safety:

  • When thunder is heard, or a cloud-to-ground lightning bolt is seen, the thunderstorm is close enough to strike your location with lightning.  Suspend play and take shelter immediately.  Safe structures include the nearest school building, building, house, or a fully enclosed vehicle with windows tightly closed. Press boxes, sheds, storage buildings, or dugouts will not provide adequate protection.
  • 30/30 Rule or Thirty-minute rule.  Once play has been suspended, wait at least 30 minutes after the last thunder is heard or flash of lightning is witnessed prior to resuming play.
  • Any subsequent thunder or lightning after the beginning of the 30-minute count, resets the clock and another 30-minute count should begin.
