Rumson Rec COVID Policy

Rumson Recreation COVID-19 Policy Agreement

This is to be completed by a participant's parent/guardian or a coach on behalf of themselves as the start of every season until further notice. 

  • Following current NJ guidance on outdoor sports gatherings (https://covid19.nj.gov/faqs/nj-information/reopening-guidance-and-restrictions/can-organized-sports-resume-what-are-the-safety-requirements-for-sports-facilities) only players, coaches, refs, two parents per player.
     

  • Quarantine guidelines: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/quarantine.html https://nj.gov/health/cd/docum...
     

  • It is the parent's responsibility to call the coach if a player is symptomatic. The coach will then call the Rec. Director who will cancel the next practice/game. Any player showing symptoms should get tested; future practice/games are dependent on the results of the test. If a player tests positive, then the entire team is shut down for 10 days. At the time the practice is canceled, the families of all players will be notified that there was possible exposure, as CDC guidelines recommend quarantine when exposed.
     

  • Individuals, including coaches, players, and families, should stay home and monitor their health if they are showing COVID-19 symptoms, or who have recently had a close contact with a person with COVID-19.
     

  • Immediately separate coaches, staff, officials, and athletes with COVID- 19 symptoms at any sports activity. Individuals who have had close contact with a person who has symptoms should be separated and sent home as well and follow CDC guidance for community related exposure.
     

  • A rec participant who is in a school class that is quarantined, cannot attend practice during the period of class quarantine. Multiple teams may be affected by a class quarantine.
