    COVID Updates

    Return to Play (sports and physical education) after a COVID-19 infectionThe NY State Department of Health is requiring that any student diagnosed with Covid-19 receive a doctor’s examination and a release note to return to gym and sports. If the primary doctor recommends a gradual return to play then the student will need to complete the 4 step process with his/her coach or gym teacher. This process takes 6 days to complete if the student remains symptom-free. 2/22/2021
