Closely monitor your child's symptoms.

Please contact Adam Hoffman if you have questions about the decision tree.

What do I do if my child has tested positive for COVID-19?

First notify Hastings Hockey COVID-19 Coordinator Adam Hoffman.

Second, your sick child will be excluded from all hockey practices and games and other activities and should stay at home for 10 days from the time the symptoms started, and until symptoms have improved, and until they have had no fever for 24 hours without using fever-reducing medications.

What do I do if my child has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19? What do I do if my child has been instructed to quarantine by their school?

First, contact Hastings Hockey COVID-19 Coordinator Adam Hoffman.

Second, Adam will discuss the following with you:

What is "close contact"?
Someone who has been within 6 feet of a person who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more throughout the course of a day (24 hours) OR ANY person who lives in the same household as a person who tested positive for COVID-19.

If your child has had close contact and is not vaccinated 10-day quarantine:
As a close contact, your child should stay at home and not take part in any activities and sports for 10 days (quarantine). Your child can return on day 11 as long as they do not develop symptoms or test positive during this time.  It is recommended that your child get tested for COVID-19 immediately and, if negative, three to five days after your child was exposed.

If your child has had close contact and is not vaccinated 7-day quarantine:
As a close contact, your child should stay home and not take part in any activities and sports for seven days from the day of exposure [day zero]. It is recommended that your child test immediately, and if the test is negative, test again three to five days after last exposure. For this shortened quarantine your child must have a negative molecular/PCR test that was taken at least five full days after day of exposure. Antigen and/or home tests are not allowed for this option. Quarantine should never be shorter than seven days.

If your child has had close contact and is within 90 days of a lab confirmed positive COVID-19 test:
If they have fully recovered and does not currently have any symptoms of COVID-19, they may continue to participate in activities and sports.

If your child has had close contact and is fully vaccinated:
As long as they don’t have COVID-19 symptoms, they may continue to participate in activities and sports and should get tested three to five days after their exposure.

We are sorry for the problems this may cause you and your family. To stop outbreaks and protect our Hockey community we need to do everything we can to stop the spread of COVID-19.  Thank you for helping to keep our players happy, healthy and safe!
