Covid-19 Rules & Precautions:
Masks are required under fencing masks/while fencing, indoors (restrooms), and any time you are unable to maintain an appropriate distance from others not in your party. To make it easy on officials, please keep your cloth/surgical mask on whenever possible.
Coronavirus masks will be treated like any other piece of attire/equipment - glasses, shoelaces, jacket zippers - if it becomes displaced, we want you to fix it, but it should generally stay in place while fencing. Shields that attach to the mask - available from a number of fencing suppliers - are acceptable as long as the fencer takes their mask off when they are away from others. (For obvious reasons, masks with unfiltered valves are not acceptable.)
To help with the logistics of this requirement, fencers are allowed to put their fencing mask on before hooking up to the reel (and salute with it on) and take it off after unhooking.
Hand sanitizer will be available at each scoring table and bout committee.
Please bring your own water so you don't have to use the restroom tap.
Please do not attend if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, have recently been exposed to a known case, or are supposed to be quarantining.
This tournament is sanctioned, so USA Fencing membership is required. You can join or renew your membership here: https://member.usafencing.org/login
