COVID -19 Return to Play

February 24, 2021

COVID Return to Play GuidanceCOVID Return to Play GuidanceDo you have a student athlete 12 years of age or older?  Have they had COVID-19?  If so, please make an appointment to have an evaluation completed before they return to competitive play.

Updated guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American College of Cardiology (ACC), and the Sports Medicine Advisory Committee (SMAC) all recommend an exam by the athlete’s doctor before returning to athletics – even if they had only mild symptoms of COVID-19.

After having COVID-19, some children will develop rare complications involving the heart and/or circulatory that may require further evaluation.   If you are unsure if your student athlete requires a pre-participation evaluation, please call our office!
