COVID-19 UPDATES

NSSA COVID-19 POLICY - Updated Jan. 4, 2022

As we return to winter training, we want to reiterate that NSSA is committed to player health and safety. As we move indoors our facility partners have some requirements for indoor training. The text in RED are new guidelines - please review carefully.

Masking
Everyone in the facility must mask as they enter and leave as well as any time they are not “actively” participating in the sport. This holds for all of our Training Facilities (gyms and turf). 

Parents
Parents may accompany players to the gym/fieldhouse and pick them up afterward. We are asking that you stay outside the gym itself during practices to avoid overcrowding. At TCO and NSC, we ask that parents remain outside the netting. In all cases, when parents are in facilities, they must be masked. 

Close Contacts
If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has COVID 19 . . 

And you are not fully vaccinated  or are more than 6 months out from your second mRNA dose (or more than 2 months after the J&J vaccine) and not yet boosted, CDC recommends quarantine for 5 days following by strict mask use for additional 5 days.

And you are fully vaccinated . . . you do not need to quarantine unless you begin experiencing COVID symptoms. The CDC recommends getting tested 3-5 days after exposure.

If You Have COVID (or Think You Have COVID) 
• Isolate for 5 days if asymptomatic or if symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours), follow that by 5 days wearing a mask when around others to minimize risk of infecting people you might encounter
• If you have received booster shot, you do not need to quarantine following an exposure, but should wear a mask for 10 days after exposure.

Make Health Checks a Habit
Lastly, as we approach the indoor/winter soccer season, we strongly encourage families to use the “My Health Check” feature on their TeamSnap app. Open the TeamSnap event, select “My Health Check” and complete the answers before each session or game. This is a requirement for some of our school district partners.
