**This is an update to our previously published Return to Play guidelines**
Since the distribution of our Return to Play Guidelines in July, new information has been made public by the CDC regarding when those that test positive can safely return to normal activity.
You can see these CDC guidelines in detail here.
Any MIFC player that tests positive for Covid-19 must inform MIFC President Greg Snyder, VP of Select Shelly Johnson and their coach of the positive test result. Your team will be informed and players in the same training pod will be asked to self-isolate per CDC guidelines for those that come in close contact.
Per the current CDC guidelines, if your player tested positive he/she can return to play after:
· 10 days since symptoms first appeared and
· 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
· Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving
The CDC further states that most people do not require additional testing to decide when they can be around others.
In addition to the CDC guidelines, MIFC is requiring players that have tested positive to provide a note from their child’s physician stating that they meet these CDC requirements and are cleared to play soccer without a mask and are no longer contagious before they can return to training.
The MIFC Board appreciates your support and commitment to keeping our players and coaches safe and healthy during this time.
