TSI COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is your policy on masks in the facility?
- Face Coverings will be strongly recommended for guests and team members who are not fully vaccinated.
- Any player/parent/coach/staff who has been in contact with anyone (including family members) awaiting results from testing or has tested positive for Covid-19, may not attend any team event or visit the TSI facility
What are the cleaning protocols being followed?
- Hand sanitizer is available throughout the facility.
- Staff continues to clean high traffic areas throughout the day. Additionally, TSI has invested in an electrostatic sprayer to be used on all surfaces. Currently, we are utilizing the sprayer in high traffic areas during the day and also in our end of day sanitizing routine. The patented technology provides an electrical charge to solutions, allowing them to wrap conductive surfaces with an effective and even coverage. Double-charged particles envelope all conductive surfaces – shadowed, vertical and underneath. It will be used in lobby, classrooms, restrooms and field house on a daily basis.

How will we be notified about positive cases?
If there is a positive case that might have exposed a team to COVID-19, TSI will inform all players on that team of possible exposure. We will not share the individual’s name for privacy reasons. At that time, all team activities and access to TSI facility will cease for 10 days.
If I have a negative test during the 14 days do I still need to quarantine?
Yes. You should still self-quarantine for 10 days since your last exposure. It can take up to 14 days after exposure to the virus for a person to develop COVID-19 symptoms. A negative result before end of the 14-day quarantine period does not rule out possible infection. By self-quarantining for 14 days, you lower the chance of possibly exposing others to COVID-19.
What is required to return to the facility after exposure?
Once a player has completed the 10-day quarantine, TSI will require a doctor’s note stating that player is experiencing no symptoms and is cleared to return. Rather than require a negative COVID test due to the possibility of false positives related to antibodies still in the system, CDC is not promoting requiring an additional test for readmission after quarantine.
