Hello BWSC parents,
I had some very good questions this week about racers who are sick with Covid so I researched the facts to help clarify how to manage a Covid positive case of your racer. I also wanted to find a clear answer for what to do if you think they were in contact with someone who was positive. I found the information below on the BC Centre for Disease Control and also asked BC Alpine how it relates to our program.
Answer: Do not send them to skiing.
2. If your racer becomes sick. Either when they return home from skiing, the night before, or the morning of skiing:
Answer: Non-fully vaccinated (most racers U12 and younger) Isolate for 10 days. Fully vaccinated (U14 and older) isolate 5 days or until no more symptoms.
3. Does someone inform the rest of the ski team?
Answer: The parents of a sick racer may make contacts aware of their racer having covid but it is not the responsibility of the ski club to do so.
4. Do other racers and coaches need to self isolate?
Answer: The BC Centre for Disease Control website says close contacts (so the other racers and coaches) do not need to self-isolate but they are to self-monitor for symptoms.
Thanks. I hope this clarifies some questions.
