NTH Game-Day Protocol NTH is committed to taking the necessary precautions to make our game environment as safe as possible for players, coaches, and parents. NTH has taken into account the guidelines set forth by the County, State and the CDC in order to make decisions we feel are feasible for our environment. Please read this information closely and please understand that, even with these precautions in place, there is still an inherent risk associated with participation.

Return to Play Following Exposure to a Suspected or Diagnosed Case of COVID-19
 
Any asymptomatic player or staff member who has been exposed to an individual with a suspected or diagnosed case of COVID-19 should be quarantined under one of the following two circumstances:
  • For at least 10 days following the last exposure if no COVID-19 tests are available
        OR
  • For 7 days if a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR or antigen Test result is obtained on day 5 or later
Quarantined individuals should be closely monitoring for symptom development and follow the recommendations for symptomatic individuals if they develop any symptoms at any time.  Otherwise, if still asymptomatic at the end of the quarantine period above, they can return to participation. 
In general, you need to be in close contact with an individual to contract the disease.  In this case, exposure means any one of the following: 
  • Caring for a sick person with a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection.
  • Living in the same household as an individual with a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection.
  • Being within 6 feet of an individual with a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 15 minutes or more within a 24 hour period.
  • Coming in direct contact with secretions from an individual with a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection (being coughed or sneezed on, sharing a water bottle or utensils, for example)
