Exposure/Infection Policy


 

Return to Play after CONFIRMED or SUSPECTED EXPOSURE to COVID-19:

1)      Household has been symptom free for at least 3 days

2)       2 Negative COVID tests, the second one being not less than 10 days since MOST RECENT possible exposure date

3)      All household members are recommended to be tested under same timeline prior to player returning to play.

4)      IF COVID-19 testing is not accessible OR if it poses a significant burden on the family, the family is asked to contact the VFC Board ASAP to discuss further. If not being tested, the player and family will be asked to isolate from the team for a full 14-days starting from MOST RECENT potential exposure and the household be symptom free for at least 3 days prior to return to play.

 

 Return to Play after POSITIVE COVID-19 Test or PRESUMED COVID -19 infection (symptom based):

1)      Household has been symptom free for at least 3 days

2)      2 Negative tests, the second of which should not be sooner than 10 days after initial positive swab, or start of symptoms, whichever is longer.

3)      The 2nd test should be done minimum of 24 hours apart.

4)      Recommend all household members are testing under the same guidelines before return to play.

5)      IF COVID-19 testing is not accessible OR if it poses a significant burden on the family, the family is asked to contact the VFC Board ASAP to discuss further. If not testing after a previous positive test (or after presumed COVID infection based on symptoms without testing), the player and family will be asked to isolate from the team a minimum of 14 days from the date of the positive test or first date of symptoms whichever is LONGER.

 

We encourage families to follow the guidance of their Primary Care Provider related to COVID-19 infection and exposure and to continue to follow the guidance of the CDC and local Public Health Departments. VFC does not presume to offer medical advice or guidance in any way.
