HVRSD Travel Safety Guidelines 

Although the State of New Jersey continues to strongly discourage all non-essential interstate travel, the Board of Education has revised the mandatory 14-day travel quarantine to follow the New Jersey guidelines for unavoidable travel: 

Travelers and residents returning from any U.S. state or territory beyond the immediate region (New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware) should self-quarantine at their home, hotel, or other temporary lodging following recommendations from the CDC:

  • If travel is unavoidable, travelers should consider getting tested with a viral test (not an antibody test) 1-3 days before the trip and again 3-5 days after the trip.

  • If travelers test positive, they should self-isolate for at least 10 days and should postpone travel during that time.

  • If travelers test negative, they should quarantine for a full 7 days after travel. Please continue to monitor for Covid-like symptoms for 14 days.

  • If testing is not available (or if the results are delayed), travelers should quarantine for 10 days after travel.

In our effort to provide the safest return to play environment for our players, coaches and community we have developed the HVL Covid Safety Guidelines.  These protocols have been carefully considered and are derived from CDC recommendations for Youth Sports Administrators and the US Lax Return to Play Guidelines.  In anticipation of the start of our season, we are asking all of our families to carefully read through this document prior to the Opening Day Zoom Meeting on March 11th.

The 2021 HVL Covid Safety Guidelines can be found HERE

US Lacrosse Update:

We also want to share an important update from the the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Sports Medical Advisory Commitee.  The NFHS Sports Medical Advisory Committee is tasked with “providing position statements related to medical aspects of conducting high school sports.”  These guidelines have been instrumental in shaping local return to play policy, including that of US Lacrosse.  Specifically, the tiered “Potential Infection Risk by Sport” system, which classified sports by "high, moderate or low risk” of Covid-19 transmission was a widely-accepted designation originally devised by NFHS. 

 

On February 2, the NFHS reversed this position of designating transmission risk through the singular criteria of “contact” while playing a sport.  Under the new guidelines, lacrosse is no longer considered a “high risk” sport.  This reversal is important as it was based on an evolved understanding of Covid which has shown that transmission through athletics is relatively rare, particularly when played outdoors.  Multiple factors have been identified when considering return to play protocol.  Notably, the HVL 2021 Covid guidelines which we submitted to the Township, fit squarely within these recommendations.  We will share our 2021 Covid protocols at the Opening Day Zoom Meeting.   (You can read the US LAX Announcement HERE.)

 

 

Finally, we want to remind everyone to follow @hovallax on Facebook or Instagram!   

 

 

See you on the field!

Thanks,

Emily
