DYNAMO SELF-ADMINISTERED HEALTH SCREEN
 
Please visit the Centers for Disease Control symptom list and perform a personal health screen each day before you visit a Dynamo Facility. The most concerning threat to an organized sports team is infection transmission within the group and beyond. Effective containment depends on early symptom identification, removal from practice (isolation and quarantine), and adherence to guidance regarding return to practice. Dynamo recommendations are subject to change. Any guidance provided by a public health entity supersedes this guidance.
 
Each day before your visit to Dynamo, please check your health and ask these questions:
 
1) Do I have a temperature of over 100 degrees?
2) Do I show any of the following symptoms or signs of illness?
  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
3) Was I in close contact (within 6 feet for 15 minutes, with or without mask) of someone with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 in the last two weeks, or someone getting a test or waiting for test results?
 
If you answer YES to any of these questions, DO NOT ATTEND YOUR PRACTICE/CLASS/WORKOUT AT DYNAMO. Instead, please let your coach or instructor know of your illness or possible exposure. You will be advised to isolate from others and seek medical care and testing if appropriate. Self-quarantining will be advised for anyone who has been exposed to COVID-19 but is asymptomatic.
 
When a person contracts COVID-19, symptoms may develop within 2 to 14 days from exposure, although some people never show symptoms. It is very important— for your safety and for the safety of others— that you monitor your health for 14 days from the last possible exposure to COVID-19. Whether symptoms are present or not, you should remain at home (apart from others in the family, if possible), avoid group settings and public activities, and practice social distancing.
 
EXPOSURE/CLOSE CONTACT
This timeline is for anyone who has been in close contact with a person with a positive case of COVID-19 (including while not at Dynamo). The CDC defines a close contact as someone who has been closer than 6 feet for 15 minutes, with or without a face covering.
 
NO SYMPTOMS
  1.        14-day self-isolation from the last day in contact with the confirmed case of COVID-19 (*Note: A negative test would not change or decrease the 14-day quarantine period, but a positive test would move him or her into the Positive Case category based on whether the individual continues to have no symptoms or has developed symptoms)

AT LEAST ONE SYMPTOM

  1.       At least 24 hours since the resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medication; AND
  2.       Improvement of other symptoms (for example, cough, shortness of breath); AND
  3.        At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
 
DIAGNOSIS/POSITIVE TEST
This timeline applies to anyone who has a laboratory-confirmed, diagnosed, or suspected case of COVID-19. Remember that this guide is based on the date symptoms started or, if no symptoms, the date the test was administered, not the date the result was received.
1)      The person must have a normal body temperature (98.6F and lower) for 24 hours without the use of medications with fever-reducing action AND improved symptoms with ability to endure strenuous exercise; AND
2)      If medical care is sought, adherence to medical guidance regarding return to practice, if provided; AND
3)      TESTING:
a.       If testing is performed and is negative, the person may return when they fulfill the criteria of #1 and #2 above (in this section).
b.       If a PCR or antigen test result is positive, and the person is asymptomatic, they must quarantine for 10 days from date of specimen collection and must fulfill the criteria of #1 and #2 above for return to practice.
c.       If PCR or antigen test result is positive, and symptoms are present or emerge, the person must quarantine for 10 days from date of symptom onset and must fulfill the criteria of #1 and #2 above for return to practice.
d.      Pending test results: A person must quarantine (no symptoms) or isolate (symptoms), while test results are pending, and then should proceed via 3a, 3b, or 3c.
 
DYNAMO STAFF
There are standard operating procedures in place that mirror the above for Dynamo coaches and staff.
 
 
ADDITIONAL SAFETY EXPECTATIONS
  • All patrons must return a signed copy of the Dynamo COVID waiver (contact your coach or facility staff for a copy).
  • When parking at Dynamo, please always maintain social distancing, and when possible leave one parking space between your car and the cars next to you.
  • Persons will only be permitted to enter the building 10 minutes before their scheduled practice or class. If they arrive early, they must wait in their car until the appropriate time to enter the building.
  • Patrons must leave Dynamo immediately at the completion of any practice class. There should be no socializing in the parking lot before or after any practice.
  • Parents/spectators will not be allowed in the building at any time unless otherwise stated and are expected to practice social distancing when waiting for their swimmer. We understand this may bring Safe Sport concerns. We will have multiple coaches, lifeguards, and staff on-site always. We will be well beyond “two-deep leadership” and well within the requirements of Safe Sport.
  • Patrons will be instructed to use a specific entrance and exit for each facility.
  • Everyone will be required to take their temperature when entering Dynamo using the contactless stations on the wall near our main entrances at each location.
  • Patrons should be prepared to arrive and depart in their suits.
  • Please follow each facility’s guidelines on restroom use. Locker rooms should not be used for changing and deck changing is strictly prohibited. The only exception to this policy will be athletes who must get ready for in-person learning/work after a morning practice/workout, or who are coming to Dynamo directly from school/work. The individuals must speak with their coach/instructor/facility staff to have permission to use the locker rooms and the coach/instructor will share specific guidelines for their use.
  • Patrons will be assigned a social distancing grid space for each practice. We ask that you only bring what is necessary for practice and limit the items that come into the facility. Once patrons enter the building, they will go immediately to their assigned spot and await instructions from their coach.
  • Patrons should bring their own water bottles (already filled). Use of the water fountains at the facility will be prohibited.
  • Patrons will not be permitted to store their equipment bags at Dynamo. They must take them home after each practice.
  • Athletes, staff, and visitors are required to wear PPE masks (cloth face coverings with loops or ties) on Dynamo property at all times. Once patrons have arrived in their social distancing square, their coach will give them instructions on when to remove their masks and head to their lane. At the completion of practice/lessons, patrons should dry-off and replace their masks as soon as possible.
  • Patrons will swim with a maximum of four (4) athletes per lane, staggered throughout the lane to maintain social distancing.
  • For everyone to stay healthy and be able to keep swimming, we ask our athletes to please practice responsible social distancing when they are away from the pool as well.
  • Dynamo staff will be disinfecting the bathrooms throughout each day.
