UYSA COVID-19 Tracking Protocols

 
 

UYSA COVID-19 Protocol:

If a player or coach in your club tests positive for coronavirus, the following measures must be taken:

  • Immediately remove player/coach from all team activities
  • Inform the team that someone has tested positive (do not disclose names) and encourage everyone to monitor symptoms
  • Submit a COVID-19 tracking sheet to UYSA (here)
  • Player/coach goes into 14-day quarantine
  • Player/coach must have two negative tests after the 14-days before he/she can return to team activities

 

The rest of the team has two options available:

  1. All team activities suspended for 14-days
  2. All team activities suspended until every player has been tested and those with negative results can resume training

 

If a player has a parent or sibling in the same household test positive for coronavirus, that player must enter the 14-day quarantine process and receive a negative test result before returning after the quarantine period. The same policy applies for a coach that has a spouse or children in the same household. The entire team will not need to be shut down when a players parent/siblings receive a positive test, just that specific player. UYSA does not need a COVID-19 tracking form for parent/sibling cases.

Coaches:

  • Coaches must always wear PPEs when addressing the team or players within a 6ft
