This information is a proposed framework for USA Rugby Coaches and Administrators to
reference as they determine return to play plans amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The included
information is in reference to general protocol offered by the Center for Disease Control (CDC),
World Rugby and the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC); tailored to the
common activities of the USA Rugby community. It is important to understand that the
following outline is not official medical advice, whereby your club and athletes should more
definitively refer to the instruction of your local health department guidance on contact sports
when determining a return to play plan.
