Current COVID Status/Regs for Volleyball-Updated Dec 2021

COVID 19 Regulations & Expectations: we will adhere to all CDC & MA safety regulations and recommendations for moderate-risk
sports that apply: physical distancing, masks and sanitization of equipment. Our primary goal is to teach the players and
protect them within our control. It is also very important that each player and family discuss and implement their own
requirements for on and off court safety. 
Our policy is: if anyone tests positive for Covid or is in contact with someone, who has tested positive, they should advise
MGA and will be asked to get tested and not join practice until test results. At that point, all should follow the
most-up-to-date CDC & MA guidelines for next steps. Any  player or family, who does not abide by our/state guidelines may not be allowed to participate in activities.

Starland as of  Aug 2021 does not require masks in the facility but our recommendation is that anyone, who is not vaccinated, wear a mask both on and off the court.  As of 12/8/21 we  re-instated our mask policy to all players and coaches to wear masks  as they enter  the building

We follow the CDC guidelines first, state second and local third in that order and that has not nor will change. We have no control over nor do we ask who has been vaccinated or not. However, an unvaccinated players has different CDC guidelines for return to play after exposure and or having had covid. You can find all the guidelines  on the CDC site for both vaccinated and unvaccinated players.

Updated CDC Isolation and Quarantine Guidance (1/2/21)

This week, the CDC updated its guidance on the isolation time period for those who have tested positive for COVID-19. (This guidance has now been adopted by DESE and DPH.) These are the key details:

  • Stay home and isolate for 5 days (reduced from previous 10 days)

    • The first day of symptoms or after a positive antigen or PCR test (if asymptomatic) is “Day 0”

    • You may return to practice on Day 6 as long as:

      • You have no symptoms

      • You continue to wear a mask whenever you are around others for 5 more days

      • You have been fever-free for at least 24 hours without fever-reducing medication

As far as tournaments & travel -we will follow the CDC and airline guidelines as well as the venue regarding masks and vaccination. As of December, The Boston Festival is requiring players and participants to show proof of vaccination. No other venue has said that players must be vaccinated but many are staying with a mask policy for now.

As far as hotel rooms: we do not ask about vaccinations and so any parent, who feels uncomfortable with their child being a  room with the "unknown", then, they can stay with their player but it will be at their own cost.
