The Green Certificate means the player (or referee) is cleared to attend that day's event. A Red Certificate means the player (or referee) is NOT cleared to attend and should stay home and likely seek the advice of a medical professional.
If a Yellow Certificate is displayed, please contact your Rec team safety rep for further guidance and assistance before bringing your player to the field. Please do not wait until the last minute, in case there is a delay in responding. If you arrive at the field with a Yellow Certificate, your player will not be permitted to stay, so it is important that your Rec team safety rep as soon as possible.
The Certificate will be accessible within your Account for the entirety of that calendar day (they expire automatically at midnight). To retrieve a Certificate at any time, simply log into the App and tap on the User's name from within the Users List.
On the day of your Rec practice or game, you'll have a few options. The preferred method is to produce the Green certificate to your coach or safety rep using the App. Alternatively, a screen shot of the date-stamped Green certificate for your player can be displayed. As a last resort, and only with your HVSA Rec Team Safety Rep's prior approval, you can send a screenshot of the Green certificate to them - they MUST give permission for this last option as it does create more work for them to keep track of who sent what.
If you have a Red certificate you should not be attending. If you have a Yellow certificate, you should not attend unless you have communicated with and received clearance from your Rec team safety rep.
A new health questionnaire must be completed for each day where a User is participating in or attending an HVSA event.
DISCLAIMER: It is important to note that this App is not making any medical diagnosis or rendering any treatment advice. It is simply a tool by which we gather responses to the health questionnaire that is required as part of our Return to Play protocols and to gather information required by the field and facility owners should contact tracing need to be implemented. As always, if you have any concerns about your symptoms or medical condition, or if you are exhibiting any symptoms, you should contact a medical professional. Likewise, if you obtain a Red Certificate, it should never be interpreted as a medical diagnosis but rather it is simply a determination that the responses provided are not consistent with our Return to Play protocols.
