- 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.
- Per US Rowing guidelines, if an athlete tests positive she must inform the head coach.
- 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.
- 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:
- Option 1: No symptoms, no test: She may return to practice on Day 11; continue monitoring for symptoms through Day 14
- 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
- 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.
