Follow the Maryland and CDC and your local school system guidance.

 

Obey all rink instructions regarding mask and social distancing requirements.

CDC COVID Guidance:

Close contact definition applies regardless of whether one or both parties were wearing a mask

 

If fully vaccinated and close exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19

- not required to isolate

- get tested 3-5 days after exposure

- monitor for symptoms for 14 days

- wear mask in public indoor settings for 14 days after exposure or until they receive a negative test result

 

If fully vaccinated and experiencing COVID-19 symptoms

- get tested

- isolate until they receive a negative test result

- continue to isolate if they receive positive test result

 

If fully vaccinated and test positive for COVID-19

- isolate for 10 days from the date of the positive test

 

If not vaccinated and are in close contact with someone who has COVID-19:

- stay home for 10 days after your last contact with person who has COVID-19 (shortened quarantine)

- monitor for symptoms; if you develop symptoms, immediately self-isolate and contact your health care provider

- quarantine can be shortened to 7 days if you are tested on day 5 or later following exposure AND receive a negative test result

 

If not vaccinated and test positive for COVID-19

- isolate for 10 days from the date of the positive test

 

If a coach, manager or player tests positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, we expect the coach / manager / player to notify the team of the positive test result and either the date the symptoms started OR the date of the positive test.  The remaining coaches / managers / players are expected to follow the above guidance.  PVAHA previously did not consider the opposing team to be a close contact, so no notifications are required.

 

---------------------------

 

The MSHL and the PVAHA do not mandate vaccinations for our players, coaches, or other team officials.  However, if you are a sponsored activity with your school, check with the school to see if they require your team to be vaccinated.
