Per NYSDOH - Sport and Recreation Master Guidance -
Responsible Parties must ensure a distance of at least six feet is maintained among individuals at all
times, whether indoor or outdoor, unless safety or the core activity (e.g. practicing, playing) requires
a shorter distance. If a shorter distance is required, individuals must wear acceptable face coverings,
unless players are unable to tolerate a face covering for the physical activity (e.g. practicing,
playing); provided, however, that coaches, trainers, and other individuals who are not directly
engaged in physical activity are required to wear a face covering.
o Acceptable face coverings for COVID-19 include but are not limited to cloth-based face coverings
and disposable masks that cover both the mouth and nose.

Yes. Routinely cleaning and disinfecting equipment and frequently touched surfaces is important to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Even though getting COVID-19 by touching an object that has the virus on it and then touching your mouth, nose, or possibly your eyes is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads, we are still learning more about this virus.
Therefore, CDC recommends that you clean and disinfect equipment and frequently touched surfaces on or around the field, court, or play surface such as drinking fountains at least daily, or between uses as much as possible. Shared objects and equipment such as balls, bats, gymnastics equipment, and protective gear should be cleaned and disinfected between use by different individuals if possible. For more information, refer to the Considerations for Youth Sports. Additionally, CDC recommends the use of disinfectants on the Environmental Protection Agency’s List Nexternal iconexternal icon, which includes about 400 disinfectants that are effective against the virus that causes COVID-19.
Another effective way to decrease the risk of COVID-19 spread is to discourage the sharing of items that are difficult to clean or disinfect. One way to do this is to be sure that you have adequate supplies to minimize sharing of equipment (such as protective gear, balls, bats, water bottles). If it is not possible to have dedicated equipment for each player, limit use of supplies and equipment to one smaller group of players at a time and clean and disinfect those supplies and equipment between use.

Second, as it pertains to the soccer community, they must inform the club. The club must protect their confidentiality but must inform others within the club that could have been in contact with that person. Those individuals should then quarantine at home.
