Exposure and Illness
This information provides guidelines in the event a Stillwater Soccer Club (SSC) player or staff member is
exposed to or diagnosed with coronavirus (COVID-19), and other relevant information. These guidelines
and the information are based on the latest recommendations from the Oklahoma State Department of
Health, the Payne County Health Department, and, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
To assist in limiting potential transmission of any respiratory illness, SSC is recommending that any
player, parent and/or coach showing any illness should not attend competition or training and adhere to
the following guidelines:
If you are Exposed to someone that has tested positive
1. Exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 means that you have had “close
contact” with that individual. Close contact occurs when you are within approximately 6 feet (2
meters) of a confirmed COVID-19 case for a period of 15 minutes or more (e.g., sitting in a room
together; sharing a car ride; hugging each other), or have direct contact with infectious secretions
(such as being directly in the path of a sneeze or cough).
2. If you feel sick, but have not had exposure to an individual with COVID-19, you should consult
with your primary care physician, telehealth provider, or urgent care service as you would in
3. In no event should anyone who is sick, whether with COVID-19 or any other illness, or anyone
who is under self-isolation, attend training or put themselves in areas with the public.
4. If someone in your household is sick and has tested positive for COVID-19, you should not attend
training for 14 days from the initial exposure to the known positive person.
5. In the event of a player or team exposure, SSC will follow CDC guidelines relating to the
exposure to a person with a known positive COVID-19 test. These guidelines can be found in
detail on the CDC website.
If you test positive for COVID-19
1. You need to notify your department of health/local health agency.
2. You are asked to notify your Coach immediately. Coaches will then notify, Edwin Sutherland,
President, SSC. Please note that your privacy will be protected, and your medical information will
be kept confidential.
3. CDC advises that anyone who has tested positive should isolate themselves for 10 days after the
symptoms first occurred in their home or a hospital, depending on the severity of illness (this will
be determined by the department of health/your local health agency and your healthcare
provider). According to the CDC, after 10 days, if you have no symptoms, you can return to
4. SSC will require players/coaches who have tested positive for COVID-19 to remain away from
training until the specified 10-day quarantine period ends AND the player has not had a
temperature of 100.4 or greater, without the use of fever reducing medicine, 24 hours prior to
returning to training. If a player continues to show symptoms after 10 days they should consult
their health care provider.
