COVID-19 Exposure Protocl
Team COVID Exposure Protocol
Updates as of November 2, 2021
Recent updates to the Washington Department of Health exposure guidelines allow us to offer a modified 7-day quarantine as opposed to the previous 10-day quarantine. Read more about the DOH updates here.
- Quarantine is when someone who has been exposed to COVID-19 stays home and away from others for the recommended period of time in case they were infected and are contagious.
- Close contacts (i.e., those who are NOT fully vaccinated or have NOT tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days and recovered) should quarantine fully at home for at least 7 days
- They should be tested for COVID-19 immediately and 5-7 days after they were last around the case during the case’s contagious period. (The tests must be molecular or antigen.)
- They should follow the recommended quarantine protocol and stay home for 7 days after their exposure. They should not attend any school-associated activities, childcare or other community activities during their quarantine period.
- After 7 days, they may resume all activities if they have tested negative no sooner than day 5 after exposure and have had no symptoms of COVID-19.
- They should continue to wear a mask in all public indoor settings, during training and on the sidelines of games while watching for symptoms through day 14.
- If players develop symptoms at any point, they should immediately isolate, get tested, and see a health care provider. Parents should inform their coach and email Dave O’Neill and Trish Mathias so proper contact tracing procedures can begin.
