Potomac Soccer Association
Effective August 29, 2021
updated January 5, 2022
Potomac Soccer Association has adopted a COVID-19 Policy to safeguard the health of our players,
families, coaches, and staff. This policy is subject to changed based on any new information and
will be updated as needed.
All employees and contractors of Potomac Soccer Association are required to receive and
demonstrate proof they have received a complete series of one of COVID-19 vaccinations,
authorized and recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Reasonable accommodation to this policy will be made for documented disabilities or medical
conditions or a sincerely held religious belief.
Potomac Soccer Association strongly encourages all volunteers be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Volunteers that are not vaccinated are required to wear a mask while participating in Potomac
Soccer Association activities regardless of indoors or outdoor activity.
All players who are eligible are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Potomac Soccer Association suggests that all employees, volunteers, and players wear masks in
publicly crowded places and indoors as well as strictly follow the current guidelines of the
jurisdiction where Potomac Soccer Association-related activities are being held. If preferred, players,
coaches, volunteers, and employees may wear a mask, regardless of a mask policy in place.
Per regular club protocol, players who have a fever or are ill in any way should not attend any in-person session. In the case of fever or illness, please email your coach or supervisor. If symptoms persistent and/or are symptoms known to be associated with COVID-19, please notify your coach and seek the advice of your health provider.
Players, coaches, employees, or volunteers who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 (by a health
professional or through a positive test) must refrain from participating in Potomac Soccer Association
activities for 10 days* from a positive test result, regardless of whether they are Fully Vaccinated or
Unvaccinated. People who get vaccine breakthrough infections can be contagious, and therefore the
protocol is the same.
If you (or your child) have been diagnosed with COVID-19, please refrain from attending any
Potomac Soccer Association activity, notify your coach or supervisor, and complete this form
immediately and/or contact email@example.com for return to play guidance.
Players, coaches, employees, or volunteers who have attended an in-person Potomac Soccer
Association activity and have been in close contact (defined as within 6 feet of someone for a
cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has been
diagnosed with COVID-19 must adhere to the following protocol*:
• You are permitted to participate in activities, as long as you show no symptoms of COVID-19.
• CDC advises getting tested 3-5 days after date of exposure.
• CDC advises wearing a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until your test result is negative.
• Do not attend any Potomac Soccer Association activity of event for 14 days** from the dates of the exposure.
• Get tested 5-7 days after date of exposure; if negative test and no symptoms, you may return to play 7 days after date of exposure.
• You should also wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until your test result is negative.
If you (or your child) have been exposed to COVID-19, please notify your coach or supervisor,
immediately and contact firstname.lastname@example.org for return to play guidance.
Any player, coach, employee, or volunteer who has taken a COVID-19 test and are awaiting results
for a reason other than required routine testing (i.e. weekly school or work testing and for
vaccinated, a potential exposure) should not attend in-person activities until they receive test results.
* People previously diagnosed with COVID-19 within the previous three months are not restricted in any way
following an exposure if they have recovered and remain symptom-free.
**Talk to your health provider before resuming participation play if you have other underlying health conditions
or severe symptoms, since you may be advised to isolate for longer.
