COVID-19 Patient & Exposure Guidance
Dear Montclair Soccer Club (MSC) Families,
To keep our MSC families informed of the evolving conditions related to COVID-19, we would like to share the recently updated guidance from Alameda County Health Services.
To keep everyone safe, we are requesting that you follow these guidelines related to COVID-19 exposures and infections:
If you/your child has tested positive:
Isolation Instructions for COVID-19 Positive test results
If someone close to you/your child has tested positive:
Home Quarantine/Isolation Instructions for Close Contacts
Definition of “close contact”
Note “Vaccinated individuals who are close contacts of a person with COVID-19 are NOT required to quarantine IF they are asymptomatic.”
If you/your child is sick:
Sick but no test results yet
CDCs definition of quarantine vs. isolation (including what it means for vaccinated vs. unvaccinated individuals):
What is the difference between quarantine and isolation?
If your child has been exposed to or tested positive for COVID-19, immediately notify your coach. Stay home if you feel sick and/or have symptoms.
Specific to MSC Players
- Wearing face masks during practice and games is optional. Families may consider having their player wear masks at this time given the recent return to school. Note: Soccer is considered a low to moderate risk activity according to the Mayo Clinic.
- Wash/sanitize hands after every practice and game.
- If your children carpool to practices or games, we encourage wearing masks given the inherently close contact in a shared vehicle. Please coordinate closely with your carpool to be aware of any potential COVID-19 exposure.
Thank you for your continued support as we navigate this recent surge in COVID-19 cases. Let’s keep everyone safe and active.
Peter Landreth, MSC Board President
