Guidance for Resumption of High-Risk Sports

Suffolk County Department of Health Services (SCDHS) has approved the resumption of higher risk sports and recreational activities in the County effective February 1, 2021. The resumption of these activities does not mean that such activities are safe or without risk.
Those participating in such activities should assess their individual situation when determining whether to participate. Those with underlying health conditions should consult with their medical provider. School Districts may also opt out from the resumption of higher risk sports and recreational activities. Further, SCDHS requires that the resumption of play follows the issued guidelines to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19. This includes the mandating of weekly COVID-19 testing during high risk sports competitive seasons. 

SCDHS requires weekly testing for:
All high risk sports coaches Competitive cheerleading student athletes Boys/girls basketball Wrestling Boys/girls volleyball Football Boys lacrosse
