Health Assessment


All participants (players, coaches, spectators, staff) should ensure that they complete a health assessment 
prior to participating in any soccer activities. The health assessment should consist of the following:
• Ensure the participants health. Take temperature daily. The average normal body temperature is generally accepted as 98.6°F (37°C). Some studies have shown that the “normal” body temperature can have a wide range, from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C). A temperature over 100.4°F (38°C) most often means you have a fever caused by an infection or illness.
• If there are any symptoms, even mild ones, do not attend practice.

Close Contact 


•If you are considered a close contact through school or other activities, it is imperative to inform your team and to stay away from activities until you have completed your quarantine. If you are required to stay away from school, then you must also stay away from soccer activities.
•If you are unvaccinated and anyone in your household or that you have had close contact with (within six 
feet for approximately 15 minutes over a 24 hour period) displays symptoms you should self-quarantine based on current CDC guidelines , The Commonwealth of MA and direction from your local Board of Health.

• Notify your soccer organization immediately if your child has been identified as a close contact by a school 
or public health authority.


Symptomatic or COVID Positive


•If you are symptomatic or test COVID positive, please inform your coach immediately. Depending on when your symptoms or positive test was received, the rest of your team may be considered a contact/close contact of COVID. In that case the entire team will have to cancel soccer activities.

• If there are any symptoms, even mild ones, do not attend practice or a game. Public health urges you to stay home and isolate until:
▪︎You have had no fever for at least 72 hours (without the use of medicine) AND
▪︎Other symptoms (cough, shortness of breath) have improved AND
▪︎At least 7 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared.
• Notify your soccer organization immediately if your child has become sick.
• Notify your soccer organization immediately if your child has been identified as a close contact by a school 
or public health authority.

For the team:


In order to return to soccer activities, those on the team who are contacts/close-contacts to a COVID positive player must:
  • quarantine for 10 days of the date of exposure
  • receive a negative PCR test taken 5 days after date exposure, and 7 days have elapsed since date of exposure.
  • However, fully vaccinated people should get tested 3-5 days after their exposure, even if they don’t have symptoms and wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until their test result is negative.

Example:


Player A has a COVID positive test on Thursday. They practiced with the team on Wednesday. Player B who was at practice with Player A must either quarantine for 10 days (eligible to return the following Saturday), or take a PCR test the following Monday or later and test comes back negative. If negative, they are eligible to return to soccer activities the following Wednesday, 7 days after exposure.

However, Player A who tested positive must quarantine 10 days regardless and be symptom free for 24 hours. Plus, they must gradually return to activities and require a doctors note to return to soccer activities.
