The Eunice Rec and it's programs will comply with federal, state & local COVID-19 guidance as well guidance provided by our sanction organizations.

According to current CDC information, (2/9/21) The following criteria will be used for determining the need for players, coaches fans to quarantine from the Eunice Rec program.

When shall a player, coach, umpire, spectator or staff member home isolate (quarantine)?

When a player, coach, umpire or spectator has either tested positive for COVID-19, experiences symptoms of COVID-19 or has been in close contact with a person who has tested positive or experiencing symptoms, he or she should home isolate for the time period listed below.

Close Contact - Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period* starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.

Players, coaches, umpires, spectators or staff members shall report any "Close Contact" to the Eunice Rec Director by phone at 337-457-0027 or email [email protected]  Any player, coach, umpire, spectator or staff member who meets the requirement to home isolate shall not enter the Eunice Rec Complex or be physically present for Eunice Rec programs, practices, games whether at the Eunice Rec Complex or other venue.  Players, coaches, umpires and staff members who are required to home isolate due to school or employment policies shall also isolate from Eunice Rec activities.  

I think or know I had COVID-19, and I had symptoms

You can be around others after:

  • 10 days since symptoms first appeared and
  • 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications 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

Most people do not require testing to decide when they can be around others; however, if your healthcare provider recommends testing, they will let you know when you can resume being around others based on your test results.

Note that these recommendations do not apply to persons with severe COVID-19 or with severely weakened immune systems (immunocompromised). These persons should follow the guidance below for “I was severely ill with COVID-19 or have a severely weakened immune system (immunocompromised) due to a health condition or medication. When can I be around others?”

I tested positive for COVID-19 but had no symptoms

If you continue to have no symptoms, you can be with others after 10 days have passed since you had a positive viral test for COVID-19. Most people do not require testing to decide when they can be around others; however, if your healthcare provider recommends testing, they will let you know when you can resume being around others based on your test results.

If you develop symptoms after testing positive, follow the guidance above for “I think or know I had COVID-19, and I had symptoms.”

I was severely ill with COVID-19 or have a severely weakened immune system (immunocompromised) due to a health condition or medication. When can I be around others?

People who are severely ill with COVID-19 might need to stay home longer than 10 days and up to 20 days after symptoms first appeared. Persons who are severely immunocompromised may require testing to determine when they can be around others. Talk to your healthcare provider for more information. If testing is available in your community, it may be recommended by your healthcare provider. Your healthcare provider will let you know if you can resume being around other people based on the results of your testing.

Your doctor may work with an infectious disease expert or your local health department to determine whether testing will be necessary before you can be around others.

For Anyone Who Has Been Around a Person with COVID-19

Anyone who has had close contact with someone with COVID-19 should stay home for 14 days after their last exposure to that person.

However, anyone who has had close contact with someone with COVID-19 and who meets the following criteria does NOT need to stay home.

  • Has COVID-19 illness within the previous 3 months and
  • Has recovered and
  • Remains without COVID-19 symptoms (for example, cough, shortness of breath)
