Illness Protocol


 

UNDER REVISION

Updated updated January 20, 2022

The below information specifies what you should do in case of illness.  Please read carefully, as there have been a couple of changes from the last session!

 

If the player or any member(s) of the players household are symptomatic or are required to isolate, the player is not to participate until the appropriate isolation period has ended. 

Symptomatic player at home or have been told to self-isolate

-          If the player becomes ill at home with one of the following new or worsening symptoms: a) fever, b) new or worsening cough, c) shortness of breath, d) sore throat or trouble swallowing, e) stuffy nose &/or runny nose, f) new loss of sense of smell or taste, g) headache, h) nausea, vomiting &/or diarrhea, i) fatigue, lethargy, muscle aches, malaise; or if the player has been told to self-isolate

o   The player must stay home. The player will self-isolate at home and contact their health care provider for advice/assessment. 

o   Advise your coach and/or Covid Safety Leader (CSL).

-          Even if the player is fully vaccinated, they are required to self-isolate if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.

 

IF a symptomatic player is tested for COVID-19

-          The player will self-isolate at home until the test results are received, and shared with the coach

o   Players with a positive test result (either a PCR test or RAT) will remain in isolation and follow Public Health Services guidance. The player cannot attend return to play for at least 10 days after they tested positive for Covid-19, or until symptom free for 24 hours, whichever is longer.  We recognize that this differs from the current guidelines of 5 days.  However, the current guidance also specifies that other public health measures (ie masking) be strictly followed for the remainder of the 10 day period, as studies have shown that an individual may be contagious for more than 5 days after symptoms appear.  Since the players are not masked during games and practices, it is out of an abundance of caution that the MRA has decided that players are not to return to play for at least 10 days or until symptom free for 24 hours, whichever is longer.

o   Players with a negative test result, with no known high-risk exposure and has not been advised by Public Health or a medical professional to isolate, can return to play when they do not have a fever (without the use of fever-reducing meds) and when symptoms have been improving for 24 hours.

IF a symptomatic player is not tested for COVID-19

-          The player must self-isolate for a minimum of 10 days after symptoms appear, or when symptom free for 24 hours, whichever is longer.

Symptomatic player at the arena

-          If the player becomes ill at the arena with one of the following new or worsening symptoms: a) fever, b) new or worsening cough, c) shortness of breath, d) sore throat or trouble swallowing, e) stuffy nose &/or runny nose, f) new loss of sense of smell or taste, g) headache, h) nausea, vomiting &/or diarrhea, i) fatigue, lethargy, muscle aches, malaise;

o   The player must NOT enter the arena,

o   IF the player becomes ill during the session, they must immediately tell the coach. The player will be immediately given a mask and removed from the arena.  The player will be isolated, and parents will be called to pick up the player ASAP.

Symptomatic player after the session

-          Immediately inform your coach, who will contact the MRA COVID Safety Leader.

-          The player must self-isolate for a minimum of 10 days after symptoms appear, or when symptom free for 24 hours, whichever is longer.  

IF asymptomatic player is tested for COVID-19

-          The player will self-isolate at home until the test results are received, and shared with the coach

o   Players with a positive test result (either a PCR test or RAT) will remain in isolation and follow Public Health Services guidance. The player cannot attend return to play for at least 10 days after they tested positive for Covid-19, or until symptom free for 24 hours, whichever is longer. We recognize that this differs from the current guidelines of 5 days.  However, the current guidance also specifies that other public health measures (ie masking) be strictly followed for the remainder of the 10 day period, as studies have shown that an individual may be contagious for more than 5 days after symptoms appear.  Since the players are not masked during games and practices, it is out of an abundance of caution that the MRA has decided that players are not to return to play for at least 10 days or until symptom free for 24 hours, whichever is longer.
