Proposed COVID-19 Update and Reminders
Happy New Year,
We hope that everyone has had a safe and healthy Holiday. As the Ann Arbor area is experiencing significantly high transmission rates of COVID-19, we wanted to reiterate the Ann Arbor Figure Skating Club's (AAFSC) universal masking policy as well as notification and quarantine policies in the event a member has tested positive for COVID-19 or identified as a close contact to someone with COVID-19. Please note that these policies are consistent with guidance from the Washtenaw County Health Department (WCHD) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
1) Universal Masking Policy Well- fitting masks must be worn by all skaters, coaches, staff, and guests of AAFSC, at all times, when in the Ann Arbor Ice Cube. Limited exceptions on the ice include when skaters are conducting full run throughs with music while preparing for competitions.
2) Monitor for COVID-19 Symptoms Please continue to monitor for COVID symptoms and do not come to the rink if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.
3) What to Do if You are Sick or Exposed to COVID-19 Should you become sick with COVID-19 and/or were exposed to COVID-19, please do not return to the rink until 5 days from the date you show no symptoms OR you are asymptomatic and can show proof of a negative rapid antigen test. Please notify the AAFSC Manager, Craig Forsyth (firstname.lastname@example.org
OR 860-899-8308) immediately to inform the club of your status so we may conduct contact tracing and notification to individuals you may have been in close contact with. All AAFSC Club decisions regarding Covid-19 situations are reviewed and advised by the AAFSC medical team in conjunction with the Washtenaw County Health Department where applicable.
4) Hockettes COVID-19 Mitigation Policies Hockettes team members, coaches and families are expected to adhere to any and all COVID-19 mitigation and testing policies for team practices, travel, and competitions.
for the current information from the Washtenaw County Health Department regarding "what to do" if you test positive or are exposed to Covid-19.
The health and safety of our members, coaches and staff remains our number one priority, and as we navigate the challenges of the ongoing pandemic, we will also continue to monitor local and federal recommendations and mandates to inform our policies.
