We need to work together now more than ever to take precautions and follow the right processes for safety. It’s important to respect the health and safety of all swimmers, coaches, family members and school staff.
- Carpooling is discouraged but at your own risk. Mask wearing is strongly encouraged when carpooling.
- Swimmers must be symptom free to attend practice. Do not attend practice if a family member are sick or has any symptoms of Covid.
- Contact Us immediately if you have symptoms of Covid, tested positive or been exposed to someone with Covid. Your health information and privacy will be taken seriously.
- Swimmers will arrive with their suit on and leave with their suit on.
- The bathrooms are only available for bathroom usage. The bathrooms are not available for changing. Masks must be worn during bathroom usage.
- There will be marked transition areas on the pool deck and in the stands 6 feet apart.
- The coaching staff will direct the swimmers to remove their mask and enter the pool for practice.
- We enforce BOTH mask wearing and social distancing.
- Swimmers must follow the directions of the coaches at all time.
- The coaches reserve the right to ask your swimmer to leave practice and not return for non compliance with the rules.
- The coaching staff will monitor and enforce all entry / exit procedures, mask adherence and social distancing adherence during practice.
Return To Practice After Illness
- We will adopt the Hauppauge School District School After Illness Protocol.
- We will follow CDC and Suffolk County Department of Health guidance for allowing a swimmer or coach to return to practice after exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 Suffolk County Department of Health and Center for Disease Control.
- If a person is not diagnosed by a healthcare provider (physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant) with COVID-19 they can return to school:
- Once there is no fever, without the use of fever reducing medicines, and they have felt well for 24 hours.
- If they have been diagnosed with another condition and have a healthcare provider written note stating they are clear to return to school.
- If a person is diagnosed with COVID-19 by a healthcare provider based on a test or their symptoms or does not get a COVID-19 test but has had symptoms, they should not be at school and should stay at home until:
- It has been at least ten days since the individual first had symptoms.
- It has been at least three days since the individual has had a fever (without using fever reducing medicine); and
- It has been at least three days since the individual’s symptoms improved, including cough and shortness of breath.
- Return to school will be coordinated with the local health department.
- The CDC provides specific guidance for individuals who are on home isolation regarding when the isolation may end. CDC recommends 14 days of quarantine after exposure based on the time it may take to develop illness if infected. Thus, it is possible that a person known to be infected could leave isolation earlier than a person who is quarantined because of the possibility they are infected.
