Peabody Youth Soccer will be following all guidelines and requirements set forth by the State of Massachusetts, Peabody Department of Public Health, and Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association. The following is a list of Best Practices that we will be following for the upcoming Spring Season. (These practices are subject to change based off the changing dynamic of COVID-19 regulations)
- The COVID Safety Officer (Kathleen Minette firstname.lastname@example.org) should be contacted in the event of the following:
- If a player, coach, administrator, or referee has been identified as a close contact or directed to self-isolate by the DPH, School Nurse or a Healthcare Professional.
- The person will be required to stay away from all soccer activities until the date set forth by the DPH, School Nurse or Health professional.
- If a player, coach, administrator, or referee should become ill or start showing symptoms at or within 48hours of a Soccer event.
- The officer will gather info to determine timelines, provide info to the Department of Health, and will make team and league notifications based of guidance from the Department of Health.
- Parents, guardians, & adult players should continue to complete health assessments before all soccer events and should refrain from Soccer activities if they are feeling unwell.
- A temperature over 100.4°F (38°C) most often means you have a fever caused by an infection or illness.
- If there are any symptoms, even mild ones, do not attend practice or a game. Public health urges you to stay home and isolate until:
- You have had no fever for at least 72 hours (without the use of medicine), Other symptoms (cough, shortness of breath) have improved
