Questions Answered by the ISC COVID-19 Advisory Committee
Does the ISC COVID ADVISORY GROUP monitor and consider changes in their recommendations based on the COVID positivity rate in Johnson County?
The risk of any SARS-CoV-2 transmission at soccer practices and games is a small risk at baseline. However, what risk does exist relates directly to the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 infection among the participants. At all times, the medical advisory group for ISC has been monitoring, and will continue to monitor, this risk especially as it relates to the level of disease among the participant age groups. Please understand that we as members of this advisory group are all sending our kids to the practices and games, as well. As such, we have a vested interest in making sure this is done correctly.
