US Lacrosse has announced a set of return to play recommendations to assist the lacrosse community in following the appropriate steps to mitigate the risk for all participants in the COVID-19 environment. The recommendations were developed by a medical advisory committee, chaired by Dr. Eugene Hong, chair of the US Lacrosse Sport Science & Safety Committee.
The return to play guidelines follow a five-stage process that will vary regionally based on recommendations and allowances from local and state public health authorities. Each of the five stages represent a progression that allow for further activity as public health conditions warrant.
