STAGE 2 Updated Information (below):
As a result of the Governor’s Restore Illinois Plan, as regions reach Phase 4, IHSA member schools are permitted to begin use of voluntary summer contact days (20 per sport) as we move into Stage 2 of the IHSA’s Return to Play Plan. To maintain the highest level of safety possible North Mac will institute the following IHSA and district requirements during Stage 2:
- All students wishing to participate in Stage 2 Return to Play must have a consent form filled out and on file (If a consent form was filled out during Stage 1 Return to Play no other action is required)
- Coaches must maintain a daily health screening on each student and coach/supervisor in attendance. These screenings will include a temperature check (performed by the individual at home and reported to the coach/supervisor upon reporting to the workout), participating student’s name, date and time, and symptoms they may present must be completed on the form. If temperatures >100.4F/38C or symptoms of COVID-19 (fevers, chills, cough, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell) are present the student must be sent home
- Gatherings of up to 50 individuals which include the coach/supervisor, outdoors, are allowed. Thirty feet of space must be maintained between gatherings of 50 while outdoors. When students are not actively participating in a drill, practice, or contest, care should be taken to maintain social distance between individuals (6 feet). Multiple groups of 50 are not allowed indoors.
- Coaches should be masked and students should be masked unless actively engaged in activity.
- Students who did not participate in Stage 1, are encouraged to follow the fall acclimatization schedule for any sport. Football players should maintain their summer acclimatization schedule, per IHSA By-Law 3.157.
- Sport specific drills are permitted and sport specific equipment may be used during Stage 2
- Diligent and effective cleaning and disinfecting of frequently touched objects and surfaces following the guidance of the CDC
- Prior to and after an individual or groups of individuals entering a facility, hard surfaces within that facility should be wiped down and sanitized (chairs, furniture in meeting rooms, locker rooms, weight room equipment, bathrooms, athletic training room tables, etc.).
- Individuals should sanitize or wash their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds with warm water and soap before and after touching any surfaces or participating in workouts
- Locker rooms may be used. Capacity should be limited to ensure members can maintain 6 feet of social distance while using the locker room.
- Students must have their own water bottles that are clearly marked with their name on it. No sharing of drinks. Hydration stations (water cows, water trough, water fountains, etc.) may be utilized to fill individual water bottles but must be cleaned after every practice/contest.
- Individual athletic equipment (helmets/shoulder pads, etc.) should only be worn by one individual and not shared.
- Shared equipment such as athletic balls, thud pads, sleds should be cleaned frequently during and after practice and competitions
- In Stage 2 spotters for weightlifting are allowed. Maximum lifts should be done only with power cages for squats and bench presses. Spotters should wear masks and stand at each end of the bar
- Students are encouraged to shower and wash their workout clothing immediately upon returning to home.
