If a player or coach meets any of the Three Criteria (tests positive for COVID-19, is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or has been instructed to quarantine due to being a close contact), the parent or guardian must keep the child at home and contact your coach and ALD so they are aware of the reason for the absence. It will help SYHA monitor the situation. For instance if we have 8 kids out with the same symptoms maybe it’s not allergies or the cold, we all hope it is.
Work with your ALD and the Covid Coordinator to establish a return to play date.
If experiencing any ONE of the following symptoms. Please Stay Home
- Fever Higher than 100.4 Fahrenheit
- Loss of taste or smell
- Vomiting or Nausea
- Sore Throat
- Muscle Aches or Body Aches
- Shortness of Breath or Difficulty Breathing
If experiencing any TWO of the following symptoms please stay home
- Congestion or Runny Nose
Any player or coach who is a close contact will be required to quarantine or essentially stay away from the team, until the proper time has passed and/or the proper testing has been done at the proper time interval.
If a player or coach lives with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, they must quarantine. This is because there is an increased risk of transmission due to sustained exposure.
Quarantine after exposed to an individual with COVID-19
If exposed and deemed a close contact your child must quarantine for a 5 days regardless of vaccination status. Please test your child on the 5th day post exposure to determine if they are positive or negative.
If the positive case is a parent or sibling the player lives with they do not qualify for the exception and must isolate for the full 10 days.
*Testing after 5 days
Additionally, we now will accept COVID-19 testing on day 5 after exposure, previously day 6 or 7.
Isolation after a Positive Test
An asymptomatic individual with a positive COVID-19 test is allowed to return after 10 days after the positive test or with a negative PCR test or rapid test performed in a medical setting 5 days after the positive result.
Symptomatic individuals may return after days 10 days if their symptoms have significantly improved AND they have been fever-free for 24 hours . OR after 5 days if fever free for 24 hours and symptoms are improving and they get with a negative PCR test or rapid test performed in a medical setting 5 days after the positive result.
