FALL 2021 COVID-19 PROTOCOLS
Below are EHS Men’s Lacrosse protocols for the fall season. We will require that all players, coaches, parents, and supporters closely follow all these guidelines at all times. These policies are subject to change at any time.
EHS Men's Lacrosse will adhere to all COVID policies/protocols implemented by West Ada School District and Central District Health.
WEST ADA POLICY (Aug 25, 2021)
Masks are recommended when outdoors.
SYMPTOMS / ILLNESS
Students/athletes are encouraged to stay home when ill.
EHS Men's Lacrosse will send home any athlete exhibiting COVID-like symptoms when arriving at practice. Please be extra cautious, protect your teammates & coaches and stay home if you feel ill.
We (WASD) are required to identify anyone who was within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for at least 15 minutes to be exposed. They will need to quarantine. Quarantine refers to the practice of separating individuals who have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 to determine whether they develop symptoms or test positive for the disease.
For specific details about quarantining after an exposure, please refer to “Exposed: How to Quarantine” here: Health Services / Exposed: How to Quarantine (westada.org)
The School Board has approved a separate motion that changes the quarantine policy so that a person that is exposed in the classroom setting, but wearing a mask and/or vaccinated, maintains their school and work-related activities. Students would be required to complete a 10-day symptom check, and mandatory mask requirement for 10 days, or a negative test at the five-day mark.
Therefore, quarantine will not be required if a student/staff member is exposed to COVID-19 in a school setting if the exposed individual was wearing a mask and has no symptoms.
ISOLATION FOR THOSE WHO TEST POSITIVE
Students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate according to the guidance provided by the testing facility or medical provider. Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 is not permitted at school or any school activities during their isolation period.
Effective January 1, 2022, shoulder pads for ALL boys’ field players must be designed for lacrosse and meet NOCSAE standard ND200.
All chest protectors and shoulder pads must contain the NOCSAE logo and SEI certification mark on both the packaging and the product to be legal for play.
After January 1, 2022, players that don't have equipment that meets this new standard will be held out of practices and games.
Additional information on this change and FAQ can be found on the USA Lacrosse website (LINK).
