Close Contact Quarantine Plans for players
If the child/youth is fully vaccinated and has no symptoms, they may continue to train with the rest of the team. At the time a mask is required until the player is tested. Players need to get tested on Day 5 after exposure using a PCR test provided by the school site. The child/youth is to stay home if they test positive for COVID-19.
If the child/youth is symptomatic (regardless of vaccination status), they will need to be tested for COVID-19 with a PCR test immediately, and be excluded from any activity for 10 days if they test positive. A PCR test can be provided by the school site or doctor. They may not come back until they have a negative test result, or a Dr’s note explaining that their symptoms were not COVID related. They’ll need to also be fever free for at least 24 hrs with improvement in other symptoms.
If the child/youth is unvaccinated and has no symptoms, and both the COVID-19 positive person and exposed child/youth were wearing masks during exposure, the child/youth may stay off from any team activities. Players should get tested immediately with a PCR test and test again on Day 5 after the exposure. If the test taken on or after Day 5 from last exposure is negative, players may resume activities on Day 8.
If the child/youth is unvaccinated and has no symptoms, but is in close contact with a positive COVID-19 case in the home, the child/youth must wait until the isolation period ends for the positive case in the home and then begin a 10 quarantine. They will also be excluded from any team activities. The contact should get tested on Day 3-5 after the exposure. If negative and the test was earlier than 5 days after the last exposure to case, get them tested again towards the end of their quarantine period. If negative and the test was done 5 or more days from the last exposure to the case, no additional testing is needed. They must remain in quarantine for a full 10 days after the positive case completes their isolation period.
If the child/youth is unvaccinated and has no symptoms, and either the COVID-19 positive person or the exposed child/youth were NOT wearing masks during exposure, the child/youth should be tested immediately and must be quarantined for 10 days if untested.
