The knowledge and circumstances around COVID-19 are changing constantly and, as such, North Seattle Rage makes no representation and assumes no responsibility for the completeness of this information.

These guidelines address only early phases of return-to-play and additional guidelines may, or may not, follow as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve.
WASHINGTON STATE’S GUIDELINES
- Stay home when sick with COVID-19 and follow CDC recommendations for time frames of isolation.
- Follow all established federal, state, and local protocols.
- Notify coaches immediately if your child becomes ill for any reason and do not bring them into contact with coaches or other players.
Procedures for coaches, players, or family members who have been exposed to, or are showing symptoms of having the COVID-19 virus.
If you or a family member in your household is showing any symptoms of COVID-19 everyone in the household should self-quarantine for a minimum of 10 days or until one of the following occurs:
- An individual receives a COVID anti-body test and receives results showing that they are positive for the anti-body and are no longer susceptible for infection.
- Individuals who receive a positive test result for an active infection and three days have passed since ALL symptoms have subsided.
- An individual who tests positive not showing symptoms (asymptomatic) and five days have passed since receiving the test results.
- The household tests negative for COVID-19.
If you or a family member shows any of the following symptoms, they should self-quarantine and contact their doctor immediately to schedule a test for the virus. Communicate with anyone who was in close contact (within six feet or in a confined space for an aggregated fifteen minutes or more, such as a car or a small room) to inform them they may have been exposed to the virus. A follow-up should be made with those individuals as soon as the test results are received.
If you have a non-close-contact (see definition above) with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, we would appreciate if you let your coach and/or the Board know as a courtesy. We may request you take one or two COVID tests just to make sure.
