Updated 12/20: Latest COVID Guidelines

Published on 12/13/2020

If you suspect you have COVID-19:  

—or if you have fever, loss of smell, cough, etc., please STAY AT HOME. Do NOT come to the club. Contact your physician. Isolate until you can get testing.

—please notify someone at the club immediately! We need to reach out to everyone with whom you have been in close contact. Please help us by remembering whom you been with. We NEED to reach out to people who have been in contact with infected members and alert them. 

If you think or you know you have had COVID-19 or have symptoms:

You can be with others after

—At least 10 days since symptoms first appeared and 
—At least 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing medication and 

—Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving (loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation)

If you had severe illness from COVID-19 (you were admitted to a hospital and needed oxygen):
—your healthcare provider may recommend that you stay in isolation for longer than 10 days after your symptoms first appeared (possibly up to 20 days) and you may need to finish your period of isolation at home.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 but have no symptoms:

—If you continue to have no symptoms, you can be with others after 10 days have passed since the date you had your positive test.
—If you develop symptoms after testing positive, follow the guidance above for "If you think or you know . . . "

If you had close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, suspects that they have it, or have symptoms of it:

—You must stay home until 14 days after last exposure and maintain social distance (at least 6 feet) from others at all time. 
NOTE: Close contact is less than 6 feet for more than 15 minutes in a day whether that person is wearing a mask or not. 

NOTE: The period when close contact can occur is 2-3 days before the person with COVID-19 develops symptoms until after all of their symptoms are gone.


—Quarantine can end after Day 10 without testing and if no symptoms have been reported during daily monitoring. This reduces but does not eliminate the risk of coming down with COVID to somewhere between 1 and 10 percent.

—Quarantine can end after Day 7 if a diagnostic specimen tests negative and if no symptoms were reported during daily monitoring.
—Quarantine cannot be discontinued under any circumstance earlier than after Day 7. This reduces the risk of coming down with COVID to somewhere between 5%-12%

—Persons can discontinue quarantine at these time points only if the following criteria are also met: 

—No clinical evidence of COVID-19 has been elicited by daily symptom monitoring during the entirety of quarantine up to the time at which quarantine is discontinued; and

—Daily symptom monitoring continues through quarantine Day 14; and

—Persons are counseled regarding the need to adhere strictly through quarantine Day 14 to all recommended non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs±, a.k.a. mitigation strategies), especially. They should be advised that if any symptoms develop, they should immediately self-isolate and contact the local public health authority or their healthcare provider to report this change inclinical status.

Ideally, persons who are exposed and who have not had testing should continue to quarantine for 14 days as per existing recommendations. This option maximally reduces risk of post-quarantine transmission risk and is the strategy with the greatest experience and best way to cut spread


DO NOT come to the club during this quarantine period. It is extremely dangerous to others. You will be asked to leave.

Self-monitor for symptoms

Check temperature twice a day.

Watch for fever, cough, or shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.

Avoid contact with people at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.
