The CCCATA COVID-19 Work Group Recommendations:

As always, make sure to consult your institution’s, city, county and state guidelines before implementing any changes to your plans.

California Department Public Health COVID Industry Guidance: Institutions of Higher Education,

Some key points to consider that were not included in the CCCATA Return to Sport Plan

Collegiate athletic teams are permitted to begin a return to practice only if:

  • Regular periodic COVID-19 testing of athletes and support staff is established and implemented by the IHE. For example, teams could consider testing at least 25% of their team and staff population every week. PCR testing is the preferred method at this time.
  • Consistent with requirements imposed by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), athletes are not required to waive their legal rights regarding COVID-19 as a condition of athletics participation.

Competition between teams without spectators is permitted to begin only if:

  • IHE can provide COVID-19 testing and results within a 72 hour period in advance of competition in high contact risk sports.

Update to the Reaction to a positive test section in the CCCATA Return to Sport Plan

CDC update for when individuals with mild to moderate symptoms can come off isolation after testing positive for COVID-19 or having symptoms:

  • 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.

For individuals that tested positive for COVID-19 but did not have symptoms

  • 10 days have passed since you had a positive test and no symptoms have occurred
  • 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.
