School sports teams are being affected by COVID-19. A growing number of youth are testing positive for COVID-19. It can be very difficult to avoid close contact with others when you are on a sports team. When one member of a sports team tests positive, many of that player’s teammates can end up being quarantined, which has already resulted in canceled games. Vaccinated youth who do not have symptoms do not have to quarantine if they are identified as a close contact.
Our call center is experiencing a very high call volume. If you have been notified that you’ve tested positive or have been exposed to COVID-19, please follow these quarantine and isolation instructions.
If you’ve been exposed: Follow the isolation/quarantine instructions until you can be tested and receive test results.
If you need to be tested: Find options on the Get Tested page. Please note: Appointments are required at most places due to high demand.
