Requirements to return to athletics after COVID-19 diagnosis 

Following new guidance from the University Interscholastic League (UIL), all Garland ISD student-athletes who are diagnosed with COVID-19 must receive clearance from a physician prior to returning to athletic activities. 

In addition to medical clearance, the Garland ISD Athletics Department also requires student-athletes who are diagnosed with COVID-19 to complete a gradual return to sports protocol. This protocol allows a licensed athletic trainer or representative to observe the student-athletes as they resume training to ensure that there are no complications from previous COVID-19 symptoms.

Please contact the Garland ISD Athletics Department at or 972-494-8588if you have any questions.
