COVID-19 Guidelines

The Altamonte Springs Recreation Department has begun a phased reopening of recreation activities, which have been structured for the safety of our patrons.

COVID-19 Exposure Procedures

Participants Exhibiting Symptoms

  • Participants are advised to stay home, seek medical attention and not return until they have been released by a physician or medical health care provider.
  • If a participant has attended an activity within two days prior to showing symptoms, the City’s Risk Manager will notify all participants and volunteer coaches who were in direct contact with the individual exhibiting symptoms (i.e., within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes within a 24-hour period).

Potential Exposures

  • If a participant is potentially exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, they must remain quarantined for 10 days from time of exposure before they can return to their organized activity.
  • The City’s Risk Manager will notify all participants and volunteer coaches of the individual who was potentially exposed.

Confirmed Cases

  • If a participant has tested positive for COVID-19, all participants and volunteer coaches will be notified by the City’s Risk Manager of the confirmed case. The notification will require these individuals to quarantine for 10 days from the date of exposure and avoid participation in any City of Altamonte Springs activity during this time.
  • If the exposure to a positive case is more than two days from when the group last participated, the City’s Risk Manager will notify all participants and volunteer coaches of the positive case. These individuals may continue to participate in activities and will self-monitor.
