Please review this latest statement from the Fairfax County Division of Athletic Services and Community Use as it pertains to outdoor events -

PARENT RESPONSIBILITIES during RETURN TO PLAY:

  • If you are not comfortable with returning to play, DON’T! You are the only one who will make the decision when your child returns to play.
  • Ensure your child is healthy and check your child’s temperature before activities with others.
  • Consider not carpooling or very limited carpooling.
  • Stay in car or adhere to social distance requirements, based on state and local health requirements.
  • When at training or games, wear a mask if outside your car if not fully vaccinated.
  • Ensure child’s clothing is washed after every training.
  • Ensure all equipment (cleats, ball, shin guards etc.) are sanitized before and after every training.
  • Do not assist your coach with equipment before or after training.
  • Be sure your child has necessary sanitizing products with them at every training.
  • If your child becomes ill for any reason, please do not send them to training.
  • If anyone in your household has tested positive to COVID-19, please notify COVID19@mcleansoccer.org immediately.
  • If you are returning from domestic travel and you are fully vaccinated, you can return to your regular schedule and activities.
  • If you are returning from domestic travel from a State or locale with a positive % test rate greater than OR equal to 10% (based on the state-by-state testing trends published by John Hopkins University - click HERE) and are NOT fully vaccinated, then we highly recommend that your player receive a viral test 3-5 days after travel AND reduce all non-essential activities for 7 days including not attending practices or games. Even if they test negative, they should stay home for the full 7 days. If the test is positive, they should isolate to protect others from getting infected. If they don’t get tested, it’s safest to stay home for 10 days after travel.
    • Note:  The recommendation is based on the most current Virginia Department of Health (DOH) Guidelines which can be found HERE.
  • If you are returning from international travel, please reference our MYS Travel/Visitors Protocol.
