To reduce risk of spreading the Coronavirus and COVIC-19 among our players, coaches, and families, Cincy SC will follow several precautions based on CDC Guidance for Community Organizations:

  • At training and in games, players and coaches will not participate in any handshakes, fist bumps, high fives, team cheers, or other unnecessary activities that would result in close contact with others.
  • Players may not share water with a teammate.
  • Parents who attend training or games should limit close contact with others (~6 feet).
  • Players will remain socially distanced during water breaks.

Players, coaches, parents, and family members should follow the general CDC recommendations for prevention, which include:

  • Stay home when you are sick or feeling ill.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and dry your hands thoroughly. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Clean frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid close contact with other people.
  • Wear a mask when indoors in public.

If a player or coach tests positive:

  • Immediately isolate, and seek appropriate medical care for, any individual who becomes ill or develops symptoms.
  • Contact Russell Lewis & head coach immediately after getting positive test results.
    • The club will follow Hamilton County Health Department protocols, which typically includes informing all players, coaches, parents that may have had exposure to the child or coach.
  • The individual, whether symptomatic or asymptomatic, may not return until:
    • at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared and
    • at least 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing medication and
    • symptoms have improved.
    • (these are taken straight from CDC guidance as of 9/1/2021)

Guidelines for cases of possible exposure:

  • Possible exposure can include situations like a family member, friend, classmate, or co-worker tests positive or exhibits symptoms.
  • Please err on the side of caution and stay home if you have any reason to believe you could infect others.
  • Please follow the Ohio Department of Health guidelines on self-quarantine and symptom monitoring.
