COVID-19 Update | PA Health Department & CDC FAQ's

Please read the following requirements  for the spring season. The club is not at liberty to make any changes.

As we prepare for the upcoming 2021 Spring Soccer season, Eastern Pennsylvania wanted to send out the most up to date COVID-19 restrictions per the PA Department of Health and CDC recommended guidelines. Please see FAQs below:

 

1) What is the current masking requirement per the PA Department of Health?

 

 All coaches, spectators, referees, players must wear a mask at all times. 

 

The only time when players or referees do not have to wear a mask during participation is if they meet an exception in the Face Covering Order. Section 3 of the Order provides an exception that allows an individual to remove their mask if wearing a face covering would either cause a medical condition, or exacerbate an existing one, including respiratory issues that impede breathing, a mental health condition or a disability.

 

What does this mean for me? 

 

Masks must be worn by coaches, spectators, referees, and players. The only scenario a mask can be removed by a player or referee is if the individual meets the exception to the Face Mask Order. Section 3 of the Order provides an exception that allows an individual to remove their mask if wearing a face covering would either cause a medical condition, or exacerbate an existing one, including respiratory issues that impede breathing, a mental health condition or a disability. All alternatives should be exhausted before an individual is exempted. Proof of a condition or disability is not required. The Department of Health asks that everyone makes best efforts to wear face coverings during athletic activities.

2) What are the current travel restrictions for Pennsylvania Residents?

 

Pennsylvanians who are returning home from other countries or states over the age of 11, must have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering the Commonwealth or quarantine for 10 days upon entry into Pennsylvania. If a traveler chooses to get tested upon entering the Commonwealth, or is waiting for test results, the traveler must quarantine for 10 days, or until receipt of a negative test result, whichever comes first.

 

3) What are the current travel restrictions for Non-PA Residents traveling from different states into Pennsylvania?

 

Anyone entering Pennsylvania from other countries and states over the age of 11, must have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering the Commonwealth or quarantine for 10 days upon entry into Pennsylvania. If a traveler chooses to get tested upon entering the Commonwealth, or is waiting for test results, the traveler must quarantine for 10 days, or until receipt of a negative test result, whichever comes first.

 

4) Are there exemptions to the travel restrictions listed above for traveling in and out of Pennsylvania?

 

Yes, you do not have to have a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours prior to your return or quarantine under the following scenarios below:

a. Individuals traveling to and from the Commonwealth for the purposes of work.

b. Individuals traveling to and from the Commonwealth for medical reasons, including individuals providing comfort and support to the patient.

c. Individuals who are returning to the Commonwealth after traveling outside of the Commonwealth for less than 24 hours.

 

What does this mean for me?

• PA Residents leaving Pennsylvania for less than 24 hours (to play a soccer game in a different state) are NOT required have to have a negative COVID-19 test or quarantine.

• Out of State teams DO have to receive a negative COVID-19 test or quarantine when they arrive into the state.

• If a team participates in a out of state tournament, and they remain in a different state for longer than 24 hours, they would be required to have a negative COVID-19 test or quarantine as listed in the order above.
