FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - According to an email from Catholic Schools of Fairbanks that was sent out to Monroe High School volleyball parents, a player on the girls volleyball team has tested positive for COVID-19 and the team has been required to quarantine for 14 days.

While Monroe has taken all of the precautions necessary, including limited close contact, due to the nature of practice and play involved in high school volleyball, Public Health has asked all of the team members to quarantine for a full 14 days as well as recommending COVID tests on or after October 17. Student athletes will be participating in online learning during the quarantine.

Per the recommendation of Public Health, if players are exhibiting no symptoms then the rest of their family does not need to quarantine. However, if the player is exhibiting any symptoms they are considered ‘symptomatic’ and the rest of their family needs to stay home and quarantine until the symptomatic child gets a negative COVID-19 test.
