Steel Magic Northwest follows guidelines issued by the CDC, and state and county (King and Snohomish) public health agencies. We are fully committed to keeping this activity safe. In addition to ventilating our rehearsal spaces with fresh outdoor air continuously and at a high rate during rehearsals, these are the guidelines we are following (these may be changed or updated at anytime):
• Those who have come in close contact with someone who has COVID should immediately start wearing a mask in public or indoor spaces for a period of ten days, monitor for symptoms, and test for COVID if any symptoms appear.
• All players should stay home if they are not feeling well, and test for COVID if symptoms include those associated with COVID (cough, runny nose, fever/chills, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of sense of taste or smell, sore throat).
• If a player tests positive for COVID, they should isolate immediately for a period of 5 days if there are no symptoms; if there are symptoms, isolate for a minimum of 5 days, but keep isolating until there has been no fever for 24 hours, and symptoms are improving (keep wearing a mask for at least 10 days if there are any remaining symptoms).

And, of course, we strongly recommend vaccinations and boosters; the vast majority of our players are vaccinated/boosted.
