USC Illness Policy
Please note our policy is based on safety for everyone.
If your child is noticeably ill or displays symptoms of any contagious disease, please keep them home from gymnastics until they are well using the following guidelines for “well”:
Your child must not have a runny nose, sore throat, cough, fever, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea to attend a class. Wellness Checks will be done by USC Staff at the door prior to entry. While at USC, if a student develops any of the above symptoms, he/she must cover his/her nose and mouth with a mask and then be escorted to wait in an isolated area near the front office until a parent/guardian is called and arrives to pick up the student.
If your child has any contagious illness (confirmed by her doctor) other than COVID-19, she/he must be symptom-free and fever-free for 24 hours. Fever-free means no fever for 24 hours while not using a fever reducer such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
If your child has allergies or asthma, please let us know on an event by event basis. If you have not informed us, we will assume she/he is ill and isolate her/him until we can contact you.
Contact your doctor concerning flu-like symptoms to determine if your child should test for COVID-19. Symptoms for coronavirus are vast from “flu-like” to “gastrointestinal issues.” DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO CLASS IF SHE/HE OR ANYONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD HAS FLU OR COVID-19 SYMPTOMS!
If anyone in your family living in your house tests positive for the COVID-19, your gymnast must wait at least 10 days and conform to the latest health department guidelines to start or resume class.
If your child or any of your household has exposure to COVID-19, your child must wait 10 days to return to class or give proof of a negative test result and then they can return without waiting the 10 days.
These same rules apply to USC coaches and staff.
