All parents of the team(s) impacted by a positive COVID case, will be notified via email with all pertinent and non-confidential information to ensure parents have everything needed to make the best decision for their athlete and their families.
Next steps – if you have been in close contact – is determined by vaccination status. Please see quick reference guide below to help in that situation:
IF YOUR ATHLETE IS VACCINATED:
- The CDC does not require and quarantine restriction or to be tested but, recommend that whether you are showing symptoms or are asymptomatic, to be tested 3-5 days after exposure, out of an abundance of caution.
- They also recommend wearing a mask indoors for 10 days following exposure, regardless of test result
IF YOUR ATHLETE IS NOT VACCINATED:
- Get Tested:
- The CDC recommends anyone who is asymptomatic is tested between 5-7 days after exposure for the most accurate test results.
- After a negative test result is produced, they can return to play after a full 7 days from exposure date. Again, only after a negative test result is produced.
REGARDLESS OF VACCINATION STATUS, SELF-QUARANTINE IS ALWAYS AN OPTION!
If you choose to self-quarantine, the CDC guidelines recommend self-quarantine for 10 days after last exposure.
Should no symptoms present in the athletes during this 10-day quarantine, they can return to practice/play.
