Medford Strikers Parents,

Impact to any Medford Strikers Player traveling to or who recently returned from one of the impacted states:
- Any Medford Strikers player traveling to one of those states will not be allowed to practice or play any scheduled games until after the quarantine period is over.
- Please notify email@example.com and your team manager upon return from one of these states – they will record the date you are cleared to return
Some have asked about testing. Per the state of NJ, testing does not negate the need to self-quarantine.
If you are from an impacted state and get a diagnostic/virus test, you should still self-quarantine for 14 days. If you test negative, you are still advised to self-quarantine for 14 days because you remain in the incubation period. A diagnostic test is a point-in-time indicator from the date of when you were last exposed – in this case, being in a state with significant community spread of COVID-19.”
