WEAR MASKS INDOORS PER LOCAL GUIDELINES
😷 Masks are required indoors per local guidelines, to include MCPS Gyms and the WCP Training Center. All teams must follow these guidelines and wear a mask indoors!
STAY HOME WHEN SICK OR FEELING SICK
😷 Be sure to monitor your child closely for symptoms and if any do present, get tested before attending training. If you are sick or feeling sick, DO NOT attend training or other WCP events. If you have cold symptoms, it could be the new variant - stay home.
STAY HOME WHILE WAITING TO TEST/WAITING ON RESULTS
😷 Do not attend any club trainings or activities if you or a member of your household is going to get tested or is awaiting a covid test result. If you are unable to test, but presume you have COVID-19, then stay home.
People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms. This list is not exhaustive - people with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

reporting a positive case/presumed positive /COVID EXPOSURE AT SCHOOL
Alert the Club immediately in the event your child or any member of your household has a positive case or presumed positive case of COVID-19. Or if you've been alerted that someone in your household has been exposed to COVID-19. Contact your coach and Suzanne, Club Admin, at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can take the necessary precautions.

IF YOU HAVE PRESUMED OR CONFIRMED COVID-19:
😷 Everyone who has presumed or confirmed COVID-19 should stay home and isolate from other people for at least 5 full days (day 0 is the first day of symptoms or the date of the day of the positive viral test for asymptomatic persons). They should wear a mask when around others at home and in public for an additional 5 days. People who are confirmed to have COVID-19 or are showing symptoms of COVID-19 need to isolate regardless of their vaccination status. This includes:
People with symptoms of COVID-19, including people who are awaiting test results or have not been tested. People with symptoms should isolate even if they do not know if they have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19.
ENDING ISOLATION FOR PEOPLE WHO HAD COVID-19 AND HAD SYMPTOMS:
😷 If you had COVID-19 and had symptoms, isolate for at least 5 days. To calculate your 5-day isolation period, day 0 is your first day of symptoms. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms developed. You can leave isolation after 5 full days.
You can end isolation after 5 full days if you are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and your other symptoms have improved (Loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation).
You should continue to wear a well-fitting mask around others at home and in public for 5 additional days (day 6 through day 10) after the end of your 5-day isolation period. If you are unable to wear a mask when around others, you should continue to isolate for a full 10 days. Avoid people who are immunocompromised or at high risk for severe disease, and nursing homes and other high-risk settings, until after at least 10 days.
If you continue to have fever or your other symptoms have not improved after 5 days of isolation, you should wait to end your isolation until you are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and your other symptoms have improved. Continue to wear a well-fitting mask. Contact your healthcare provider if you have questions.
