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.


If you played a game in the preceding 48 hours prior to symptoms or positive test, please notify your referee assignor so that the referees can be informed.




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.
