Current NSSL Guidance for COVID-19 Exposure and AQI

NSSL Guidance – Communication of Potential COVID Exposure at NSSL Games

With the aim of both minimizing the risk of COVID-19 spread in our community and providing as safe of a playing environment as possible at NSSL (Nevada Select Soccer League) games, we ask that all member teams follow the most recent guidance from the State of Nevada and the local county public health department regarding testing, self-isolation, quarantining and reporting (see links below) when discovering a positive COVID case within your team.

If a positive case is discovered within a team that either may have caused exposure to players at a previously played NSSL game or has the potential to cause an exposure at an upcoming NSSL game, the club admin or team manager is expected to communicate this information at the earliest possible opportunity, via email, to the following individuals. This is to enable our soccer community to take the necessary steps to both prevent further exposure and ensure that the relevant testing, self-isolation, quarantining, and reporting processes, as outlined by public health authorities, are followed.

COVID Protocols

As an organization, NSSL will continue to follow, and require NSSL/NYSA Member teams to follow, the most recent public health guidelines and requirements from the State of Nevada and/or local county public health authorities, in order to ensure player and spectator safety at NSSL games. We are monitoring these guidelines closely and will communicate any significant changes to club leaders, coaches, and managers as and when they occur. Individual clubs may be required to follow local guidelines from their county, city, or facility provider, that NSSL is not aware of, in order to continue operating within their local community, and we ask that your club proactively communicates with opposition teams to ensure that everyone attending games are aware of what to expect.

If a team is unable to play a game due to COVID-19 exposure within the team, this will be considered an “accident” or “Act of God” as per NYSA’s bylaws and rules. Please see the NSSL Bylaws for more details on how to address this situation with your opposition team and NSSL coordinators.

Air Quality Index (AQI) Guidance

A reminder that the AQI guidance below should be used when deciding whether or not to cancel NSSL games. Teams are asked to please wait until the day of the game before canceling, if possible, due to the nature of air quality readings, as they can change quickly. Please make every effort to collaboratively reschedule any games that need to be canceled, so that the kids can still play the game during the season.

  • 0-100: Games should be played
  • 100-125: Game can be rescheduled – decision to be made by the clubs/teams involved. Both teams need to agree to playing the game.
  • 125+: Game will be canceled and rescheduled

Thank you,
