Isolation (Quarantine) Guidelines

The BSA quarantine guidelines listed below are based on the most recent set forth by the New Jersey Department of Health.

If your child tests positive for COVID:

If your child has tested positive for COVID 19 they are required to isolate (quarantine) for five days (day 0 is the first day of symptoms or the positive test, whichever is earlier). If symptoms persist after 5 days, your child should continue to stay at home and isolate until fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever medications) and when other symptoms have resolved. If symptoms resolve after a minimum 5 days of isolation or if your child never developed symptoms, isolation can end and your child may return to play.

If your child is experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID 19:

Players are required to isolate (quarantine) for five days unless a negative COVID 19 test is received. (a home test will not be accepted; it must be a PCR test or Rapid antigen test). If symptoms persist after 5 days, your child should continue to stay at home and isolate until fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever medications) and when other symptoms have resolved.  If symptoms resolve after a minimum 5 days of isolation or if your child never developed symptoms, isolation can end and your child may return to play.

If your child is a close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID 19:

Exposed close contacts who have no symptoms and are fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine if they are identified as a close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID 19.  Should be tested 5-7 days following exposure and should monitor for symptoms of Covid-19 for 14 days following exposure.

Exposed close contacts who are unvaccinated should stay at home and isolate away from others for at least 5 full days from the date of the last contact with a COVID-19 case (day 0 is the date of the last contact).  Monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19, including fever (100.4 or greater), cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, chills, rigors, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, congestion, or runny nose, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. If symptoms of COVID-19 develop, stay at home, call your child’s doctor, and get tested.

Exposed close contacts who have no symptoms and have been diagnosed with Covid-19 in the last 90 days do not need to quarantine or be excluded from school.
