Covid-19 Screening

Upon entry into each workout, a coach/director or other trained personnel member will administer a screening. Student athletes will wait in a socially distanced queue to participate in the screening. The screening will assess the following:

  • Temperature:  Must be lower than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Screening Questions:
    • Cough?
    • Shortness of breath?
    • Student in contact with Covid-19?

Students who pass the screening with an acceptable temperature and "No" to all questions are admitted to that evening's open gym/tryouts session, while students who DO NOT pass the screening are sent home, followed by a phone call to their parents to explain.
