On November 5, AHS updated the definition of Close Contact to include:
- Close contacts are defined as anyone that was within two metres of a positive case of COVID-19 for more than 15 minutes, even if a mask was worn during that contact.
- A close contact is ALSO someone who has had direct contact with bodily fluids of a person who has COVID19 (e.g., was coughed or sneezed on), or who provided direct care for a person who has COVID-19.
For sports that involve close, sustained or intermittent and repeated contact, all members of the teams playing each other are considered close contacts when there is a case on a team.
Anyone who falls into any of the above categories is considered a close contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19.
If someone on your soccer team tests positive for COVID-19, you are considered a close contact and must isolate for 14 days from the time you were exposed. It is recommended that you get tested for COVID19.
If you competed against another soccer team that has a confirmed case of COVID-19, you will be contacted by the Event Organizer if your teams competed during the infectious period. See: AHS Information for Close Contacts of a COVID-19 Case
