COVID/Quarantine Rules

UPDATED September 16, 2021

Our highest priority remains providing soccer opportunities in a safe environment. The policies below are developed by soccer board with support and input from various government agencies, cooperating soccer clubs, healthcare providers, and governing bodies for soccer.

The policies below give parents, coaches, and players an idea of what to expect at the fields as well as the increased responsibilities we all will need to undertake to ensure all our participants can continue to play and develop safely. And, while we are confident that the steps below are in line with all directives we’ve received, parents ultimately are given the responsibility of making the best decisions for their player as it relates to participating in soccer at this time.

As we adapt and progress through North Carolina’s phased re-opening approach, we expect to provide additional updates to these policies. The policies are subject to change to accommodate additional directives from the State of North Carolina, the NC Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Union County Health Department, and soccer’s state and national governing bodies.

  • The individual can return if her or she has tested (PCR test, not a rapid test*) negative (with test performed on/after 5 days after last exposure) and if a minimum of 7 days have passed since the last known date of direct exposure and no symptoms have presented. A copy of your NEGATIVE PCR test results must be sent to both your game coach and to Aaron Hester, COVID case manager (aaronhester7@gmail.com) prior to the match with ample time to review the document.
  • Unless the player is completing the full 14-day quarantine, those players who have completed this protocol, and return earlier than fourteen days, must still be monitored through the fourteenth day for symptoms.

Symptoms Screener

An answer of “no” is required to attend or play in any practice, game, or soccer function of any kind.

  1. Within the past 14 days, have you been in contact with anyone that you know who has COVID-19 or COVID-19 symptoms?
  2. Within the past 14 days, has a public health or medical professional advised you to self-monitor, self-isolate, or self-quarantine?
  3. Since you last played, have you had any of these symptoms?
    • Fever or Chills
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • New cough
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Congestion or Runny Nose
    • Headache
    • Muscle Pain
    • Sore Throat
    • Fatigue
    • Nausea or Vomiting
    • Diarrhea

If the answer is “Yes” to any of these questions, the player should go home, stay away from other people, and have a guardian call their health care provider.

PCR Tests vs. Rapid Tests

  • PCR: These tests provide more accurate results than rapid tests, and that’s because they use a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to identify the viral genetic material of COVID-19. This genetic material can be detected while a person is actively infected and also after the acute illness.
  • Rapid Antigen Test: These can be administered for individuals with or without COVID19 symptoms. This test involves collecting nose and throat secretions via nasopharyngeal swab and then examining them for protein fragments specific to the COVID-19 virus. While these tests provide quick results—within 15 minutes—they are generally considered to be less accurate than PCR tests. For more information about PCR Tests and Rapid Tests, click here.
