COVID-19 Vaccine/Testing Requirement for State Tournaments

In order to participate in a state tournament event, student-athletes and coaches must be:

  1. Fully vaccinated*;
  2. Present a negative antigen or PCR COVID-19 test taken through a CLIA certified laboratory or under an approved CLIA Certificate of Waiver within 72 hours of the contest (home based tests will not be accepted)**; OR
  3. Following a COVID-19 diagnosis, present a written documentation from their medical provider that includes: (1) at least 10 days have passed from the date of the first positive test; (2) the student-athlete remains asymptomatic and without known exposure to COVID-19; AND attesting that the student-athlete is medically cleared.

*Fully vaccinated = 2 weeks following either: 2 doses of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine; or 1 dose of Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

**For tournaments lasting longer than one day, each game/match will be a separate contest. E.g. for volleyball matches on Monday and Friday, a student-athlete would need 2 separate negative tests.
