Georgia Concussion Law
What Does This Mean for Me?
Your child’s school, public or private, must have a concussion policy that includes, at a minimum:
- An information sheet that informs parents or legal guardians about the risk of concussions
- A requirement that any young athlete who has concussion symptoms must be removed from play
- A requirement that a child must be cleared by a healthcare provider trained in concussion management before returning to play
Recreational leagues are required to provide an information sheet to parents or legal guardians about the risks of concussions
