STUDENT - ATHLETE COVID 19 RETURN TO PLAY POLICY (DPH / CIAC):

From the CIAC Approved Winter Sports Plan v1-14-2020: (page 5)

For clarification, it is DPH’s position that a return to athletics should include the full 14-day quarantine period. This means that a student-athlete may return to in-person instruction after a shorter quarantine period (i.e., 10 days), however, must wait the full 14-days prior to returning to athletics.   

(*Please note the above guidance was developed in consultation with the CSMS Sports Medicine Committee and is informed by AAP COVID-19 Interim Guidelines. While this guidance references a potential gradual return after 10-days, the DPH updated guidance to CIAC requires a 14-day period prior to any return of a COVID-19 quarantined student to athletics.)  

Guidance on Return-to-Play after COVID-19 Infection

A graduated return-to-play protocol can begin once an athlete has been cleared by a licensed medical provider (cardiologist for moderate to severe COVID-19 symptoms) and feels well when performing normal activities of daily living. The progression should be performed over the course of a 7-day minimum.

Sports offerings include field hockey and  soccer in the fall, basketball in the winter, and softball and baseball in the spring. Intramural Sports will also be offered to Grades 5-8 but will vary by season.
