Lakeshore Lightning Covid-19 Response Update
Submitted By Steve St. Pierre on Wed 10 28, 20
As you may or may not know, we have had a player within our organization that has tested positive for Covid-19.  There have been many questions about what the proper steps should be in response to this situation.  Below is from the WECHU website.

“When a person is confirmed as a positive case for COVID-19, public health staff contact them to inform them of this diagnosis. During this conversation public health staff conduct a detailed interview with the person to collect information about their symptoms, their physical health risks and social risks. This interview also includes asking questions about people that they were in contact with 48 hours before they started to show symptoms of COVID-19. Not everyone that has been in contact with an individual infected with COVID-19 is at a high risk of contracting or further spreading the virus. Only those determined to be in “close contact” with the infected individual will be advised to take some action to limit potential exposures. Close contacts include people who provide direct care to the person, have close physical contact with the person (more than 15 minutes) or live with the person.”

Moving forward, the following steps are to provide guidance for when a team member has been exposed to someone that has tested positive Covid-19:

  • If you exhibit symptoms, you should self-isolate and get tested.
  • If the test is negative, you are able to resume play immediately. 
  • If the results are positive, you must contact your coach.
  • The coach must contact a member of the Lakeshore Lightning Executive.
  • Players that test positive can only return to play once they are cleared by a health professional.

It is our policy that once a player from any team has tested positive for Covid-19, all team activities will be suspended for 7 days to allow players and coaches to self-monitor.  According to the WECHU, symptoms general appear 48hrs after contracting the virus.  After 7 days of self-monitoring and no symptoms, the team will be allowed to resume play.
