The Edina Swim Club's top priority, during this unprecedented time, is the safety of our coaches, swimmers, and any other officials/volunteers on deck. We follow the CDC and MDH guidelines to ensure everyone is comfortable with their surroundings. Before swimmers return to the pool, everyone needs to have completed a waiver, health screening form, and read over our preparedness plan and re-entry slideshow. All of these items are found below.

COVID-19 PLAN/POLICIES FOR SWIMMERS: UPDATED JANUARY 1, 2021

Any swimmer with a known exposure to COVID-19 or who seeks COVID testing due to potential exposure must notify the club immediately so that we can determine appropriate next steps and timing for return to practice.

 

  • If a swimmer is symptomatic and has tested positive for COVID-19, they need to remain out of practice until they have been fever-free for 24 hours, respiratory symptoms have improved, and it has been at least 10 days after the start of symptoms
     
  • If a swimmer is asymptomatic and has tested positive for COVID-19, they need to remain out of practice for at least 10 days after the positive test (assuming that they remain symptom free)
     
  • If a swimmer has COVID-19 symptoms and does not get tested, they need to remain out of practice until they have been fever-free for 24 hours, respiratory symptoms have improved, and it has been at least 10 days since the start of symptoms
     
  • If a swimmer has a known exposure (15 minutes of total exposure in a 24 hour period within 6 feet) to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and is asymptomatic, the safest option is to remain out of practice for 14 days from the last date of known exposure.  However, a swimmer may end their quarantine after 10 days under the following conditions:

You do not have any symptoms

No one in your home or apartment building has COVID-19

You have obtained a PCR-negative COVID test (not a rapid test) 6 days or later after exposure (Exposed on 1/3, test on/after 1/9).

  • If a swimmer has no known exposure to COVID but has symptoms and tests negative for COVID, they can return to practice once they have been fever-free for 24 hours and all other symptoms have resolved.
     
  • Any swimmer who tests positive and who is 12 years of age or older must have a medical clearance to return to practice and submit the completed MSHSL medical clearance form to their coach (MSHSL Protocol). This form needs to be signed and stamped by your athletes physician.

Any swimmer who has had COVID-19 in the past 90 days and has close contact with someone with COVID-19 does not need to quarantine if ALL of the following are true:

The illness was confirmed with a positive lab test in the past 90 days.

You have fully recovered.

You do not currently have any symptoms of COVID-19.


You should still continue to stay 6 feet from others, wear a mask, and wash hands often.
