COVID EXPOSURES AND INFECTIONS
1. Any player, or family member, who has been exposed, on quarantine, awaiting test results, or has tested positive, must be reported to SBLA Youth Hockey director, for proper contact tracing & notification. These individuals should avoid all SBLA sanctioned activities until a plan of action has been determined.
2. If you, your player, or a member of your family is sick or has symptoms of an illness, you, your player, and family members should stay home regardless of what may be causing your illness.
3. Per CDC, “Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms.”
4. “Close contact” is defined as being within 6 feet of someone with COVID for a total of 15 minutes or more in a 24 hour period irrespective of whether the person with COVID or the contact was wearing a mask or whether the contact was wearing respiratory personal protective equipment (PPE).
5. Any player, coach, or family member who has had “close contact” with an individual with known or suspected COVID infection should follow CDC guidelines about quarantine. Please visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/quarantine.html
• Current guidelines require an individual who has had close contact with someone who had COVID-19 to stay home for 14 days after the last contact.
• Close exposure that occurs more than 2 days before symptoms started, or 2 days before a positive test for someone asymptomatic, does not require quarantine.
• If no symptoms develop after 14 days of quarantine, the player, coach, or family member may return to normal activity.
• Individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 illness do not need to quarantine if re-exposed within 90 days of the initial diagnosis.
6. If a player or coach contracts COVID-19, they should isolate themselves. Please visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/isolation.html
