Please CLICK HERE for a summary of current COVID-19 protocols and procedures as they relate to our athletic teams. *Please note that these protocols and procedures may be updated throughout the school year in accordance with CDC and DOH guidance along with OVSD School Board approvals.
ANY STUDENT OR STAFF MEMBER WHO HAS COVID-19 SYMPTOMS, OR HAS BEEN RECENTLY EXPOSED TO SOMEONE WHO HAS COVID-19, IS NOT PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY ACTIVITIES AND MUST STAY HOME! These symptoms include but are not limited to: temperature over 100.4, cough, nausea or diarrhea, sore throat, shortness of breath, or close contact/cared for someone with COVID-19.
The Oley Valley School District follows the requirement from our athletic training provider, St Luke's Health Network, that any student-athlete who becomes infected with COVID-19 must have their family physician complete the medical release form located at the bottom of this page, and then complete a gradual 7-day return to play protocol (after being cleared to return to school/sport). This gradual return to play protocol will be monitored by our athletic training staff to help ensure the virus has not compromised the cardiovascular system.
Any questions about COVID-19 procedures relating to our student-athletes should be directed to the Director of Athletics, Mr. Timothy Rhoads at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 610-987-4111.
