NKSC Covid Guidance

Masks

As of 8/29/2021, the WA State Governor’s Office and Department of Health are NOT requiring players, coaches, or spectators to wear masks at training or games, although they may choose to wear one. Physical distancing among spectators is strongly encouraged. 

Given the lack of access to vaccines for certain age groups and varying levels of community transmission, the club supports any player who chooses to wear a mask. Should any new guidelines come out that effect players, coaches, or spectators at training or games, this document will be updated and redistributed. 

Self-Health Check

Players, coaches, staff, and spectators MUST perform the following check before every club event. If you answer YES to ANY of the following questions, you MUST stay home.

  • Do you have any of the following symptoms in the past three days (72 hours): 
  • A cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • A fever of 100.4°F or higher or a sense of having a fever
  • A sore throat
  • Chills
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Nausea/vomiting/diarrhea
  • Congestion/running nose – not related to seasonal allergies
  • Unusual fatigue
  • Have you been in close contact with anyone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19?
  • Have you had had any medication to reduce a fever before coming to practice/game? 

Exposure to COVID

A coach or player with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 must isolate/quarantine until:

  • At least 10 days have passed since signs first showed up, AND
  • At least 24 hours have passed since recovery – defined as no fever without the use of medications and improvement in other symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath).
  • If the player or coach was in contact with their team within the 48 hours prior to symptom onset or diagnosis, the team should be notified. If the individual participated in a game within the 48 hours, the opposing team must be notified. 

An unvaccinated coach or player who believes they have had close contact to someone with COVID-19 must not go to training, games, or other events. They should watch their health for COVID-19 symptoms during the 10 days after the last day they were in close contact with the person sick with COVID-19. This quarantine period may be shortened or lengthened upon the advice of a public health official or doctor.

Fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or who had confirmed COVID-19 in the past 3 months and do not have symptoms of COVID-19 do not need to quarantine or be tested post-exposure and may continue with game and practices. Fully vaccinated players should wear a mask when attending practices or games for the first five days after exposure and should be tested 3-5 days post exposure. They should monitor for 14 days following an exposure. 

Notification 

  • If your player or someone in your household has a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis, notify our COVID coordinators: Darcy Dormaier (Competitive Program) at [email protected] & Kate Leibold (Recreational Program) at [email protected]
  • Our COVID coordinator will keep your information confidential.
  • The club will work with and follow the instructions of public health contact tracers when determining whether team training needs to be paused or others on the team must be quarantined.
