Online Reporting Form

With community spread of COVID-19, many people will be near, around or exposed to people who are symptomatic or asymptomatic with the virus.  If a coach becomes aware of someone who thinks they have been exposed the following questions need to be asked.
  1. How did the exposure occur?  (Home, school, friend, inside, outside, etc)
  2. Does the positive patient live or cohabitate with the player?
  3. When did the exposure occur?
  4. How long was the player with the positive patient when the exposure occurred? (Brief <15 mins, Extended, or Long)
  5. Was the exposure inside or outside?
  6. When the player interacted with the positive patient, were both wearing masks?
  7. When the player interacted with the positive patient, were they socially distant?  Meaning greater than 6ft.
  8. When was the player last at team activities such as training or game?
So, as an example report:
Player Sally was exposed to a positive patient at school.  Sally does not live with the positive patient.  They are just classmates at school. Sally was last with the positive patient at school three days ago.  Sally was with the positive patient in a classroom, but they sit greater than 6ft apart and all students wear masks.  Sally was last at training on Monday night. 

This report should be sent to the Director of Coaching. 


If an individual was exposed to someone with a positive case, but has not tested positive, are the other team members considered exposed at that point?

  • They are not considered exposed unless the individual that was exposed develops symptoms or tests positive. We are not requiring action for indirect exposure.

If a child was sent home from school with because of having one or more COIVD-like symptoms how does that impact soccer?

  • Keep in mind the point of the protocols are to mitigate the spread of the virus.  If a child is sick, they could spread COVID or any other cold, flu or other illness to fellow players.  It is best to be safe and stay home.
  • At minimum, student athletes should stay home until they are symptom free of any illness.
  • Student athletes who are experiencing COVID-like symptoms but being diagnosed with a non-COVID illness must be fever-free for 24 hours and symptoms have improved. This should include a negative COVID diagnostic test. 
  • Student athletes who are probable cases of COVID must complete 10 calendar days of isolation from the date of first symptom onset AND be fever-free for 24 hours without use of fever-reducing medications AND symptoms have improved before returning to soccer.
