COVID-19 Club Protocols

Revised 1/4/2022


Full vaccination is defined as receiving all eligible doses of the vaccination.

  • For Ages 5-11:  receiving primary doses of the vaccine (2 doses for Pfizer)
  • For Ages 12-17 (updated 1/5 by CDC): includes booster if it has been greater than 5 months (Pfizer)
  • For Ages 18 and over: includes booster if it has been greater than 6 months from receiving second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or greater than 2 months from J&J). 

STAY HOME and inform your team manager/coach and Club Administrator Michelle Alioto if: 

1- Your player has tested positive for COVID-19

2- Your player is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19

3- Your player is unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated* and has been in close contact to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 and/or is waiting test results

4- Your player is in continued contact with a household member who tested positive in the last 10 days

If the Player TESTS POSITIVE for COVID-19:

1- Stay home and isolate for 5 days** if they are asymptomatic or symptoms have resolved, and they are without a fever for at least 24 hours. Players then must wear a mask for an additional 5 days. **Please refer to NOTE ON CALCULATING TIMELINE 

If the Player was in CLOSE CONTACT with a person who has COVID-19:

This varies depending on vaccination status:

1- Unvaccinated or Not Fully Vaccinated*:


1- Day 0 is defined as the first day symptoms begin or the day of the positive viral test for asymptomatic
Day 1 is defined as the first full day  

5 full days of isolating/quarantining means you can return on Day 6.

TIMELINE EXAMPLE: For example, a player’s symptoms or positive viral test begin on Monday, which the CDC considers Day 0. Tuesday is the first full day after symptoms began, which the CDC considers Day 1. Wednesday is Day 2, Thursday is Day 3, Friday is Day 4, Saturday is Day 5. Sunday is the 6th day when the player can return (wearing a mask for an additional 5 days).

a. Quarantine for 5 days** from the date of exposure, followed by strict mask use for an additional 5 days. Monitor for symptoms.

2- Fully Vaccinated* (having received all eligible doses):

a. No quarantine is needed; Wear a mask for 10 days after the date of exposure and monitor for symptoms.

3- Regardless of vaccination status, if players experience COVID-19 symptoms, they should immediately quarantine until a negative test confirms symptoms are not attributable to COVID-19.

4- If you develop symptoms after testing positive, your 5-day isolation period should start over. Day 0 is your first day of symptoms.

If the Player LIVES IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD (close contact with ongoing exposure) with a member who tests positive for COVID-19 or has COVID-19 symptoms—regardless of vaccination status--:

1- Quarantine throughout the isolation period of the household member with COVID-19.

2- Continue to quarantine for an additional 5 days OR get tested after the end of the isolation period of the infected household member.
Wear a mask when in contact with the person with COVID-19 throughout the person’s isolation period.

Wear a mask when in contact with other people in the home until quarantine ends.

Isolate immediately if they develop symptoms of COVID-19 or test positive.



Who Does NOT Need to Quarantine

If you came into close contact with someone with COVID-19 and you are in one of the following groups, you do not need to quarantine.

Who SHOULD Quarantine
If you come into close contact with someone with COVID-19, you should quarantine if you are in one of the following groups:

  • You are ages 18 or older and completed the primary series of recommended vaccine, but have not received a recommended booster shot when eligible.
  • You received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine (completing the primary series) over 2 months ago and have not received a recommended booster shot.
  • You are not vaccinated or have not completed a primary vaccine series.



  • QUARANTINE: You quarantine when you might have been exposed to the virus and may or may not have been infected. This means staying home.
  • ISOLATION: You isolate when you have been infected with the virus, even if you don’t have symptoms. This means you stay home and separate from others in the household by staying in a specific “sick room” and using a separate bathroom if possible. All household members should wear masks during isolation.

Revised 1/4/2022 to include CDC Updates and Shortening of Recommended Isolation and Quarantine. Please note the shortened recommendation of quarantine is due to the science that the majority of COVID-19 transmission occurs early in the course of illness--generally in the 1-2 days prior to onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after.
