  • The American College of Cardiology recommends that any child that has tested positive for COVID stays out of sports for 14 days.
  • If the child develops symptoms of COVID, he/she should be asymptomatic for 14 days before returning to sports.
  • Kids 12+ years old and active in sports who had moderate COVID symptoms (fever for 3 or more days, bed rest) should have an ECG before returning to sports.
  • If the ECG is abnormal, or if there are cardiac symptoms (chest pain/shortness of breath with exertion, palpitations, fainting, new murmur), a pediatric cardiologist evaluation is recommended.

** These recommendations are in place because of the risk of COVID-associated myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle.)**
