COVID Protocol for Infection/Exposure as of 01/03/2022

Details of the infection/exposure protocols are below and are condensed from the LACDPH  website.  Please retain and review these instructions if your player tests positive or is symptomatic, or is a close contact of an infected person.

But to minimize transmission within our program - I'm asking EVERYONE (players, volunteers, parents/spectators) to follow these simple guidelines as we ride this wave.

1.  Wear a mask (well-fitting, non-cloth mask of multiple layers of non-woven material with a nose wire) when you can't consistently maintain 6' distance.  
     For players - during arrival to the field, warmups and close drills, while as a substitute during games, post game. 
     For coaches - when giving coaching instruction within 6'. 
     For parents/spectators - when sitting close together at games.

2.   Test weekly if possible.  This will identify cases so they can quarantine and reduce transmission.  Testing is also VITAL to shortening quarantine length.  Tests are hard to get - please take advantage of the opportunities we offer.

3.  NOTIFY ME ([email protected]immediately if your player tests positive or is exposed (close contact) of an infected person.

So now here are the details:

* CLOSE CONTACT

You are a “close contact” if you were exposed to someone who tested positive* for COVID-19 while they were infectious if:

  1. You were within 6 feet of someone with COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period.
  2. You had unprotected contact with body fluids and/or secretions from someone with COVID-19. For example, you were coughed or sneezed on, you shared a drinking cup or eating utensils, you kissed, or you provided care to them without wearing the right protective equipment.

*Tested positive means they had a positive COVID-19 viral test.

** EXEMPT

YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO QUARANTINE if you do not have symptoms AND you are up to date on your COVID-19 vaccines.  This means that you are either fully vaccinated and boosted or you are fully vaccinated but not yet eligible for a booster.
