Covid-19 Return to Sports and Physical Activity Guidance as of June 2021

Per the AAP “All children and adolescents who test positive for SARS-CoV-2 should notify their pediatrician. For a child or adolescent who is SARS-CoV-2–positive who is either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic (<4 days of fever >100.4°F, <1 week of myalgia, chills, and lethargy) a phone or telemedicine visit with the pediatrician is recommended, at a minimum, so appropriate guidance can be given to the family. All individuals should be instructed on proper quarantine (duration and restricting exposure to other people within the house) and the importance of not exercising while in quarantine. The SARS-CoV-2 infection should be documented within the individual’s medical record”

If your child has tested positive elsewhere please give the office a call at 978-988-6200
