COVID-19/Return to Play Info


I would like to welcome you to SOMO's Return to Play (R2P) page on our website. Here you will find guidelines, resources, and tools to assist you in mitigating the risk of COVID-19.

Information on COVID-19 is changing daily. Transmission rates vary across Missouri by city and county. Special Olympics Missouri is dedicated to protecting the health and safety of our athletes, volunteers, coaches, families, officials, staff, and all who contribute to the success of our athletes in training, competition, and events.

The information in the R2P guidelines document and information found on this website are by no means a prescriptive, complete or exhaustive list of Return to Play considerations. We recognize we will learn, adapt, and adjust as we make our way through this pandemic.

We will make updates to R2P protocols on this page, so please come back often for updates. We will also communicate directly with the coaches with any updates via our coaches' e-communications. Let me know if you aren't on the coaches eNews list.

Thank you for being a part of the SOMO family and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Stay safe & healthy,

Susan Stegeman
President and CEO

These guidelines were approved by the Special Olympics Missouri Board of Directors on July 6, 2020. You can download the SOMO Return to Play Guidelines here. While the SOMO COVID Training & Education video outlines these guidelines, you must also read this document as well.
