COVID-19 Update


1. Please come to tennis activities with masks. Masks may be the single most important safety item we can use to prevent the spread of Covid-19 variants Delta and Omicron. I will ask students/players to wear masks when in close proximity to others.

2. What If I or My Child Experience COVID Symptoms?

● If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should get tested and stay home and away from others.

● If you’ve had close contact with someone who has COVID-19, you should get tested 5 days after your exposure, even if you don’t have symptoms. You should not come to tennis class or lessons until you test negative. You should also wear a tight-fitting mask in or outdoors for 10 days following exposure or until your test result is negative.

● If your test result is positive, or you develop any symptoms of COVID, you should begin 5 days of isolation. Assuming you have no more symptoms and a negative test, you are able to participate in the tennis class/activity. If you have symptoms and/or no test, 10 days of isolation is required.

● Contact your healthcare provider or the public health department for isolation guidance. If your test is negative, please continue to follow COVID-19 safety mitigation and prevention measures of wearing your mask, social distancing, frequent handwashing, etc.

● If you have no symptoms and are boosted and vaccinated, you are still encouraged to do a COVID test 5 days after your exposure.

These measures may seem a bit much for some, and I understand. But I would rather err in keeping all of us safe and healthy so we can partake in the benefits of tennis. The impact of C-19 on individuals varies and we need to be considerate of each other’s situation. If you have any questions, let me know. I look forward to seeing all of you and the kids back playing on the courts. 

If you have questions regarding these items, you can email, text or call. Again thanks for your understanding and support. Be safe and practice good social distancing and safety habits. Wear a mask and wash your hands!
