Determinations should be made relating to any staff members or players that may have been exposed to the virus and may need to take additional precautions. Notification relating to this potential exposure should be made to the parent or guardian of each player and each staff member. Confidentiality must be maintained. These potentially exposed individuals should quarantine for 14 days and self-monitor for symptoms.

Potential Exposure to COVID-19

Individuals (staff members or players) who have symptoms upon arrival to program events or who become sick during an event should immediately be separated from others by a designated staff member equipped with personal protection face mask and non-latex gloves. Pick-up arrangements should be made based upon the emergency contact/s of the staff member or player. This aims to ensure that the staff member or player receives safe transportation to his or her home or to a healthcare provider.

The facility, in most cases, does not need to be shut down although any items touched by the sick person should be disinfected. Waiting 24 hours before cleaning and disinfecting these items is recommended to minimize potential for assigned staff members for being exposed to respiratory droplets. Continued cleaning and disinfecting of all high-touch surfaces within the facility is also advised.

Any and all issues or concerns should be directed to EBSC President Dom Mastro @ ebcoachdom@gmail.com
