Dear Parents –
New AHA guidelines require special clearance for any patient age 12 and up who will return to sports practice within six months of having COVID. If your child needs a physical for sports, we will inquire about their COVID history and perform the necessary screening. If your child has already had a yearly physical, but then tested positive for COVID, we will need a clearance visit prior to signing any sports forms for immediate return to sports or for upcoming seasons. Please provide COVID history details when calling to schedule a physical or requesting sports forms.
