PrintCOVID Info

The ERA has released a COVID Return to Play Policy with regard to members having symptoms or testing positive for COVID or if a household member has symptoms or tests positive.  This policy is in line with Ministry of Health Guidance (page 9)



Updated March 27, 2022
T
he following applies to all ERA members (Players, Coaches, Bench Staff, On-Ice Volunteers, Referees, Executive)

Individuals who have COVID-19 symptoms** or tests positive:

 

• Must stay home and self-isolate for at least 5 days from the day symptoms started and until symptoms have been improving for 24 hours (or 48 hours if nausea/vomiting/diarrhea), whichever is longer

 

• From day 6 to 10, must wear a mask in public places, including while practicing and playing games and do not visit higher risk settings

 

Individuals with someone in their household who has symptoms of COVID-19 or tests positive

 

• COVID-19 positive cases/individuals with COVID-19 symptoms should isolate away from household members where possible to avoid ongoing exposure.
• Household members of the COVID-19 positive case/individual with COVID-19 symptoms, should generally self-isolate while the individual with COVID-19 symptoms is isolating, with the following exceptions: 

- Household members who are 18 years of age and older and have already received their booster dose are not required to self-isolate

- Household members who are under 18 years of age and are fully vaccinated are not required to self-isolate

- Household members who have previously tested positive for COVID19 in the last 90 days (based on positive rapid antigen test or molecular test results), are not required to self-isolate and can attend high-risk settings, as long as they are currently asymptomatic

If self-isolation is complete after 5 days, or if self-isolation is not required, for a total of 10 days after the last exposure to the COVID-19 case, ALL household members must: 
  • Self-monitor for symptoms and self-isolate if they develop any symptom of COVID-19;
  • Continue to wear a well-fitted mask in all public settings
    •  Individuals should maintain masking as much as possible in public settings. Reasonable exceptions would include removal for essential activities like eating (e.g., when eating in shared space at school/work and maintaining as much distancing as possible)

 

*COVID Symptoms include:

Includes one or more: Fever > 37.8*C/or chills, cough, difficulty breathing, decrease or loss of taste/smell

Includes 2 or more of new or worsening symptoms today, or in the last 5 days: sore throat, headache, feeling very tired, runny nose/nasal congestion, muscle aches/joint pain, nausea/vomiting/diarrhea

Important Notes:

Clearance testing is not required. A positive test requires completion of the isolation period even if symptoms are improving

For counting isolation days: the day the symptoms start (or test date if no symptoms) is Day 0.
