SOMD Return to Activities Protocols

by | Jul 2, 2022 | Uncategorized

  • Effective with the 2022 fall sports season, there will be no sport-specific vaccination requirements for fall sports and activities that previously required full vaccination for participation in events and competitions with multiple area programs (flag football team, soccer team, volleyball, powerlifting, bowling).
  • At this time, there will be no requirement for full vaccination for overnight housing provided by SOMD, including the local program.
  • At this time, a negative COVID test is no longer required to return to activities after a positive COVID test.  Individuals must follow CDC recommendations for isolation and masking found here:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/quarantine-isolation.html
  • Some notes about these changes:
    1. These changes are only in effect through the Bowling State Finals (12/4/2022).  Protocol changes to future sports seasons, sports, and activities will be communicated at a later date.
    2. We will continue to follow state/local/venue restrictions for all COVID-19 Protocol, so if there is a venue (for local or state activities) that requires proof of full vaccination for participants and/or spectators, we will follow their protocol.
    3. As always, COVID-19 protocol is subject to change based on the current COVID-19 situation.  Should we need to make further changes to protocol, those will be communicated directly.
