COVID Return to Play
Post COVID athletes must be cleared by MD, DO, APRN.
SMSD in conjunction with KUMC has decided that athletes being returned to playpost positive COVID, must receive clearance from an MD, DO, or APRN. We will not accept a DC or PA-C due to the recommendation of a cardiac assessment being performed. MDs, DO, APRNs may listen to a heart and determine no further action necessary, we aren’t requiring an EKG, we are just requiring that the athlete be seen by a health professional who can perform a heart assessment. We are not changing KSHSAA’s paperwork. This is an SMSD practice decision made in conjunction with KUMC.
