Suspected/Confirmed Cases

  • If the identity of all persons in close contact with an infected individual cannot be readily determined or if the coaches, players, or their parents/guardians or administration of the team do not effectively cooperate with the local health department contact tracing process, then the local health department may require the entire team, including the coaches, to self-quarantine for 14 days following exposure. Individuals may return to play afterward if they have not had any COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Any players, coaches, officials, or other individuals who become ill or develop symptoms must be immediately isolated and seek medical care.  Parents will be immediately notified to pick up their child as well as the child removed from the area with anyone else.  Michele Leber will also be contacted to begin the process of documenting the illness and communicating with the parents/health department.
  • Contact the local health department about suspected COVID-19 cases or exposure.
  • The affected person should seek COVID-19 testing as soon as possible.
  • Coaches, administrators, parents, and athletes must work with the local health department to identify individuals who were potentially exposed to help facilitate contact tracing.  
  • A team, school, or club must notify all athletes and parents/guardians associated with the affected team regarding a positive test.  
  • If the affected individual participated in competitive play, the team must notify all opponents played between the date of the positive test and two days prior to the onset of symptoms.  If in a different county, the health department in each county must be notified.
  • An individual who tests positive for COVID-19, whether symptomatic or asymptomatic, shall not return to Sports activities until a documented medical exam is performed clearing the individual prior to the individual returning to participation in practices or games.  The documented medical exam must specifically include an assessment of the cardiac/high risk of high-intensity exercise due to the potential myocarditis occurring in COVID-19 patients.  
  • When a player, coach, or athletic trainer tests positive for COVID-19, team members who are not close contacts requiring self-quarantine as determined by the local health department, should conduct daily symptoms assessments and stay home if sick, and an in-person temperature check before the start of each practice and game for 14 days as a precaution.
