Covid-19 Testing and Return-to-Practice Protocols

  1. If an athlete or anyone in her household is being tested for any reason, the athlete may not return to practice until all test results have been received and there are no positive test results.

  2. Per US Rowing guidelines, if an athlete tests positive she must inform the head coach.

  3. The head coach will call parents/guardians of individuals who, per CDC guidance, have been in close contact with the athlete who tested positive. "Close contact" is defined as 6 feet (approximately 2 meters) or less for more than 15 minutes. In terms of boat placement, this translates to the girl immediately behind and the girl immediately in front of the individual who tested positive.

  4. If an athlete is not fully vaccinated and is deemed to have been in close contact with the Covid-positive girl, with Day 0 being the date of last exposure:
    1. Option 1: No symptoms, no test: She may return to practice on Day 11; continue monitoring for symptoms through Day 14
    2. Option 2: No symptoms, negative test: With no symptoms and a negative test result on or after Day 5, she may return to practice on Day 8
  5. If an athlete is fully vaccinated and has no symptoms since exposure, she may continue to practice but should monitor for symptoms through Day 14

This pertains only to RGCC activities. If an athlete tests positive, follow guidelines of other entities (e.g., RHS) as warranted.

RGCC is committed to the safety of our athletes, coaches and competitors.

A safety review session will be conducted at the start of each season (fall and spring). All coaches, athletes and at least one other RGCC board member (preferably the president or vice president) must attend. The purpose of the safety review meeting is to review the Safety Manual as well as any additional safety-related information (videos, presentations, etc.)

Every athlete must attest to reviewing both the RGCC Safety Manual as well as the USRowing Safety video at the beginning of each season. The COVID-19 Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability must also be reviewed, signed and returned with each athlete's registration packet.

The RGCC Safety manual can be found here.

The Radnor Township School District Athletics Health and Safety Plan (July 28, 2020) can be found here.

All new and returning athletes must pass a swim test, to be administered by the RGCC coaching staff.

The USRowing Safety video can be viewed below.
