COVID-19 Protocol

 

Exposure and Illness

This document is intended to provide guidance for response in the event a Broken Arrow Soccer Club, or Express Futbal club player, staff member, or volunteer is exposed to or diagnosed with coronavirus (COVID19), and other relevant information. These guidelines and the information are based on the latest recommendations from the Oklahoma State Department of Health, the Tulsa Health Department, the World Health Organization (WHO), and, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

To assist in limiting potential transmission of any respiratory illness, BASC requires that any player, parent and/or coach showing any illness should not attend competition or training and adhere to the following guidelines:

 

If you are Exposed to someone that has tested positive

  1. Exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID19 means that you have had “close contact” with that individual. Close contact occurs when you are within approximately 6 feet (2 meters) of a confirmed COVID19 case for a prolonged period of time (e.g., sitting in a room together; sharing a car ride; hugging each other), or have direct contact with infectious secretions (such as being directly in the path of a sneeze or cough).
  2. If you feel sick but have not had exposure to an individual with COVID19, you should consult with your primary care physician, telehealth provider, or urgent care service as you would in normal course.
  3. In no event should anyone who is sick, whether with COVID19 or any other illness, or anyone who is under selfisolation, attend training or put themselves in areas with the public.
  4. If someone in your household is sick, you should not attend training. Please consult with your primary care physician, telehealth provider, or urgent care service as you would in normal course.

 

If you test positive for COVID19

  1. You need to notify your department of health/local health agency.
  2. You are asked to notify the Club President president@basoccer.club of your diagnosis as soon as reasonably possible. Please note that your privacy will be protected and your medical information will be kept confidential.
  3. CDC advises that anyone who has tested positive should isolate themselves for 14 days in their home or a hospital, depending on the severity of illness (this will be determined by the department of health/your local health agency and your healthcare provider). According to CDC, after 14 days, if you have received two negative tests for COVID19 taken 24 hours apart, you should be cleared from selfisolation.
  4. You may physically return to training when there is no longer risk of transmitting the disease to others. BASC requires that players, coaches, contractors, employees, and volunteers who have tested positive for COVID19 to remain away from training until the specified 14day quarantine period ends and they become free of COVID19 as determined and documented by the medical provider.
