Frequently Asked Questions




Q: What is CUSA’s definition of “sick” within Covid policies?

A: If your player isn’t feeling well, we encourage you to keep them home to rest until they’re feeling better. If your player has a sickness that includes a fever and/or cough, you need to implement our Covid guidelines by informing the coach and staying home for 10 days after onset of symptoms and 72 hours after resolution of both cough and fever.

Q: Does my player really need to wear a mask? What kind of masks are acceptable? 

A: Yes, per guidelines from OHA, players must wear a mask when 6ft distancing cannot be maintained. Players may remove their mask during water breaks or when they can maintain 6ft distancing. During game/scrimmage play, referees will help enforce the wearing of masks for players. 

 

Q: If someone in my family is sick, but my player isn’t, can they still practice and attend games? 

A: If a household member has an illness with cough and/or fever you should contact your coach before your player returns and await further information. Otherwise (no household sickness involving cough and/or fever) players may return and maintain adherence to Covid guidelines at home and on the fields. Additionally, if your sick household member has fever and/or cough symptoms they can not be a spectator until 10 days after onset of symptoms and 72 hours after resolution of both fever and cough.

 

Q: If my player is sick, can they return to play? 

A: If your player has an illness with cough and/or fever you need to inform the coach and remain home for 10 days after onset of symptoms and 72 hours after resolution of both fever and cough. 

 

Q: What if a household member tests positive for COVID?

A: Immediately inform your coach and isolate your player at home for a minimum of 14 days after their last date of exposure to the known case of COVID. 

 

Q: What if my player tests positive for COVID?

A: Immediately inform your coach and isolate your player at home per guidelines from your health provider. Players will not be able to return for at least 14 days from onset of symptoms and 72 hours after resolution of symptoms. 

 

Q: What happens with our information after we’ve reported to the club? 

A: The club will consult and coordinate confidentially with local public health authorities regarding the case, as per state mandates. With your permission, your player’s team will be notified by the coach or club director that there was an exposure to COVID or positive results of COVID within the team, without giving identifying information. Your information remains confidential.

 

Q: Will we be informed if someone on our player’s team has had exposure to COVID or a positive COVID test result?

A: Per state guidelines, there is no requirement to inform teams when this happens. We will encourage families to allow us to share information without identifying information, but only with their permission. No matter the situation, confidentiality for families will remain. Even with permission, teams will only be given general notice of exposure to or positive results for COVID within their squad. No identifying information or specifics beyond that will be shared. 

 

Q: How do current restrictions impact me as a spectator?

CUSA follows Canby School Dist polices and OHA outdoor venue rules for allowing spectators and we are currently at 2 per player.

 

CANBY UNITED PHASE II POLICIES 

Participants must be healthy and free of symptoms in order to participate. 

 

All participants – coaches, players, volunteers, and staff – must be free of a cough and/or fever above 100 degrees symptoms for the last 72 hours and at least 7 days from any onset of symptoms. Anyone who is exhibiting these symptoms during training will be asked to leave.

Parents will be asked to sign a waiver on behalf of their child in order to participate that indicates their child is not sick or has had contact with someone with Covid19. A current waiver must be on file for participation. 

Parents are responsible for taking their child’s temperatures at home and monitoring their players for symptoms of any sickness. 

Coaches and staff will take their temperature before training begins and upon arrival be asked the following questions and respond negatively in order to attend CUSA activities:

  1. Have you had a cough or a fever above 100 degrees within the last 72 hours?
  2. Have you had contact with anyone with confirmed COVID19? 

If a player is sick or exhibiting symptoms, they will not be allowed to participate. 

  

Limiting of touching of equipment

 

Players will socially distance for their personal equipment such as a ball, water ball (no sharing of water bottles), and backpack. These will be marked and spaced out appropriately. 

 

All players and staff will maintain minimum 6ft distancing when feasible.

Players will not be allowed to touch. No handshakes, high fives, or huddles.

Lines of players will maintain appropriate social distancing as is feasible. 

Volunteers and team managers will be utilized to help ensure players and any spectators are maintaining 6ft distancing throughout each training session. 

 

Face Masks and Face Coverings

All players and spectators must wear masks while at Trost and Baker Prairie schools. Players may remove the mask briefly to catch their breath during breaks in play or water breaks. 

Spectators are required to wear masks at all times when at a CUSA event.

In accordance with OHA guidelines, players are required to wear a mask, when actively participating in an indoor sport or an outdoor sport when six (6) feet of physical distance cannot be maintained in accordance with Statewide Mask Guidance.

The type of mask/face covering can have a large impact on airflow. It may take a few tests to see which mask would be the best for your player. 

Face shields made of hard plastic are not allowed
