Guidance for practice after travel, alternate swim meets
With decreasing rates of COVID19, frequently changing guidance, and events and gatherings beginning again, we adopted the following guidance for swimmers who plan to travel or engage in larger in person gatherings. Our goal with this guidance is to maintain a safe environment for our swimming cohorts but be fair and not overly burdensome.
For swimmers who are not fully vaccinated:
1. For swimmers who travel (>120 miles, or by air travel anywhere) or engage in large in person events where strict masking and distancing are not both maintained (such as high school or regional swim meets, or large gatherings with eating), we recommend that they not attend swim practice until they have tested negative for COVID 3-5 days after return.
2. For example, if they return home on a Sunday, and they have a test on a Wednesday (day 3 after return), they may return to practice as soon as that test is resulted and is negative.
For swimmers who are fully vaccinated:
No restrictions or need for testing after travel or meets/large gatherings.
Please read his guidance from Alameda County
Fully Vaccinated People:
• Are less likely to get and spread COVID-19 while traveling.
• Should follow CDPH travel guidance. They are not required to test or quarantine before or after travel, unless they have symptoms concerning for COVID-19 disease.
What does it mean to be fully vaccinated?
• You are fully vaccinated two weeks (14 days) after you receive a one-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson)
or the second dose of a two-dose vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna). COVID-19 vaccines are available at no
cost to people ages 12 and older in Alameda County. To find the vaccination site nearest you, visit our
A place to sell, exchange or give away swim items. Email submissions to [email protected] by Sunday night to be included in the weekly newsletter.
