NCAA Preps for Summer with Latest COVID-19 Guidance

The NCAA is preparing for summer with a new document released Tuesday that outlines COVID-19 resocialization guidelines for summer activities. 

The NCAA Sport Science Institute has released “Resocialization of Collegiate Sport: 2021 Summer Activities,” its seventh publication regarding the resocialization of college sports amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The document includes the latest best practices on infection risk mitigation procedures and protocols for individuals with COVID-19 and covers upcoming milestones in the athletic calendar, such as return-to-campus considerations.

“Thanks to the distribution of vaccines, the level of COVID-19 immunity across the country has increased considerably, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its guidance for vaccinated individuals. This is reflected in our latest resocialization document,” NCAA chief medical officer Brian Hainline said in a statement. "However, vaccination levels are still not high enough to reach effective immunity across the country. This suggests virus transmission will continue at the local level rather than large outbreaks across the country, emphasizing the need to carefully monitor local trends and immunity levels.”
