Covid-19 Preventative Measures at Family Feud Trivia Games & Guidelines for Participation

*Prior to and during your season, S3 Leagues will be closely monitoring Covid-19 advice and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as local and state officials. We will continually educate our league coordinators on updated preventative measures, require day of games temperature checks and that they inform us immediately and stay home if feeling unwell or displaying Covid-19 symptoms.


– The host bar for this league is strictly following all city and state health guidelines to keep everyone safe. They can provide plenty of space between team tables and will be cleaning and disinfecting everything right before we arrive each night.


– At all times such as when entering the bar, using the restroom, etc, wearing a face covering is required. Bandanas, neck gaiters, balaclavas or masks with valves are not allowed as they have been proven not to provide sufficient protection to you and others. All players on all teams are required to wear masks throughout the night (yes even while chatting) unless they are in the act of taking a bite of food or drinking. We highly suggest that you cease speaking while eating or drinking until you have put your mask back on.

This list includes important safety precautions and guidelines that we and our players must follow at games. We need EVERY registered participant to read this in its entirety so we’re all on the same page before attending. First you will see bullet points that provide a brief outline of each item.

THE FULL SAFETY GUIDELINES & REGULATIONS OF PLAY

  • First and most importantly, if any player is feeling generally unwell or experiencing Covid-19 symptoms as defined by the CDC here, YOU MUST STAY HOME AND NOT ATTEND THE GAME AT ALL. There is a zero tolerance policy with this, so don’t make our umps have to send you home. We must ALL look out for each other during these times, and that includes being responsible for yourself with regard to this.
  • ALL players and ALL subs must sign our digital waivers before participating. There will be a standard waiver and additional Covid-19 waiver. We will be cross referencing signed waivers with daily rosters provided to us by teams (explained below) to ensure all participants each day have completed the waivers. If you have a player during a game that had not signed the waiver, your team will forfeit that day. You can sign the league waivers here.
  • We will have a ZERO tolerance policy for any intentional acts of non-adherence to these rules set forth. Any blatant disregard for social distancing, intimidation, risky virus related fooling around or flagrant disrespect for your fellow player or staff. This will result in ejection from the bar and likely from the league with no refund provided. More than ever, we expect players to be happy and respectful while playing. We are living in a different time right now where all players MUST play with integrity and be understanding of each other and the situation.
  • ALL teams are required by state mandated guidelines to provide S3 Leagues with your daily team attendance roster. First and last names preferred. First names only are okay if last names are not known. One member of the team must email it to roster@s3leagues.com. Failure to do so may result in forfeit of the game as it is a requirement we must follow.
  • On teams we create, do not assume that someone is comfortable speaking closely or standing close to you, even with a mask on.
  • For your own safety and the safety of others, it is incredibly important that players do not touch their face AT ANY TIME from the beginning of the game until the end. If you must cough or sneeze, do so into your elbow, shirt, etc. NOT into your hands or into the air.
  • Face coverings over the mouth and nose are required to be worn from entry until departure at the bar. All players on all teams are required to wear masks throughout the night (yes even while chatting) unless they are in the act of taking a bite of food or drinking. We highly suggest that you cease speaking while eating or drinking until you have put your mask back on.

  • Players should limit the amount of belongings they bring to the bar. If possible, please do not bring any unnecessary bags, purses, or any other items not being used for the game.
  • No shared sources of hydration, beverages from the bar or food items are to be shared unless by members of the same family unit.
  • No high fives or close celebratory interactions between teammates during games.
