  • Carry hand sanitizer in order to enable good personal hygiene.
  • Cover mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
  • Avoid the use of public toilets, however if necessary, ensure hands are washed thoroughly.

Equipment Safety & Cleansing – Players

  • Avoid touching gates, fences, benches, etc. 
  • Consider wearing a mask or a face shield when attending activities when social distancing cannot be maintained. Avoid touching the mask while using it and clean your hands if you do.

Emergency Response Plan

The main body of this COVID-19 Emergency Response Plan is organized in three sections, which outline the key roles and responsibilities of LU F.C. Academy in each of the three (3) pandemic phases:

  1. Prepandemic Phase: This is the critical stage for COVID-19 pandemic preparedness. The pre‐pandemic phase is NOW, and planning efforts need to focus on Academy education of the membership (i.e., volunteers, staff, coaches, parents, players, match officials) on Ontario Soccer and Canada Soccer’s Return to Play Plan and Protocols. Please note that the Return to Play Protocols comply with the Province of Ontario emergency orders and health authority directives. In addition, coordination with facilities (especially if third-party) should be included as they may have additional plans & procedures in place.
  2. Positive Test Phase: Confirmation of a COVID-19 positive test within the LUFC membership will declare when it is time to activate your COVID-19 Action Plan. During this phase, the key goals will be to prevent further infections within the organization and minimize program disruption. This phase remains active until the infected party has been isolated and under the control of professional health authorities and there is no further threat to the health and safety of your soccer organization’s participants.
  3. Postpandemic Phase: The post‐pandemic period begins when the Provincial Health Officer declares that the COVID-19 pandemic is over. The primary focus of work at this time is to restore normal services, deactivate pandemic response activities, review the impact, and use the lessons learned to guide future emergency response planning.

In the event a member of the club, staff or coaching staff receives a positive test confirmation of COVID-19, the Academy will refer to its contact tracing log and will initiate the Emergency Response Plan (ERP).
