The FHSAA has been closely monitoring updates from the CDC and the Florida Department of Health. In a recent conference call with the CDC, sports organizations were advised to work closely with their own state and local health departments to protect against the COVID-19 virus. Click HERE for general prevention guidelines for COVID-19. The most recent update from the Florida Department of Health states the following:
If you have been to China, Iran, Italy or South Korea in the past 14 days, you need to self-isolate for 14 days. If you become sick during self-isolation, call your county health department.
Protect yourself and your community from COVID-19. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Avoid close contact with people who are sick, and stay home when you are sick.
Per the advice of the CDC, the FHSAA advises all member schools to communicate with local health departments for updates and recommendations relating to each schools local area. The FHSAA will continue to closely monitor Florida Health’s updates and notices and take swift action if deemed necessary by the Florida Department of Health.
