Summer Activity Participation Guidelines
Thursday, June 25, 2020
Dear parents,
As you know, students have been allowed to begin participating in summer activities because of updated
standards from the Utah High School Activities Association, the Utah State Health Department, the Davis
County Health Department and state government officials.
Of course, that does not mean the COVID-19 virus has gone away. As a matter of fact, the more people
congregate, the higher the risk becomes – as evidenced by the number of cases in Utah continuing to increase.
As Davis School District officials, we are very cognizant of the increased risk of bringing students together. Members of some teams have contracted the virus since summer activities began and are now in quarantine. Because of that, the following guidelines will be implemented:
• All students will have their temperature checked daily prior to taking part in summer activities. If a student has a fever of 100.4 or higher, they will not be allowed to participate.
• All students will fill out a questionnaire daily prior to participating in summer activities. That questionnaire (which can be accessed through their mobile device with a QR code) will ask them to provide their name, school, grade level, sport or activity. They will also respond to the following:
– I am unaware of being a possible carrier or infected. I confirm that I have not tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
– Are you currently waiting for results of a COVID-19 test?
– Do you currently have a cough?
– Do you have a runny nose, sore throat or diminished sense of taste and/or smell?
– Are you currently experiencing any unusual muscle soreness?
• Spectators will be allowed at summer practices, scrimmages and the like. If you are one of those spectators, we strongly encourage you to wear a cloth mask when you cannot physically distance yourself from others. Household groups can congregate together.
We acknowledge these standards are inconvenient. Yet, there is still no vaccine for COVID-19 and we must take these steps to provide the protection that is warranted.
