Covid Protocols: BYHA is following the protocols of the Belmont Board of Health, State of Massachusetts and as pertains to playing of hockey within this context, those of Mass Hockey. In practical terms, what this means, at this time, is that BYHA players, coaches and supporters will follow the Covid protocols and requirements of the towns and rinks in which we are playing, coaching or spectating.
General Any player, coach, parent or spectator who is showing signs of symptomsMAYNOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY BYHA ACTIVITY, SHOULD CONTACT MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL(S) IMMEDIATELY AND GET TESTED.
Any teammates, coaches, parents or spectators who were in close contact (defined by the CDC as 15 minutes within six feet) must also be tested, and follow the guidance of their physician, since they could also contract the virus. The initial test is needed to determine if they were infected at the time of the contact, possibly from a common source.
All close contacts who may have been exposed to the virus should be notified without identification of the infected person in compliance with HIPPA laws. This protects the individual’s identity, but allows for teammates and families to take necessary action such as testing and self-isolating.
An infected player, coach, parent or spectator should immediately isolate and secure treatment as advised by medial professionals. The COVID-19 case must be reported to the local public health authorities by the infected family and their recommendations should be followed.
