Covid 19 Protocols and Restrictions:
Each fencing competitor is allowed ONE (1) “plus-one” that can be a parent or private coach or guardian. No other spectators are allowed to attend this tournament. All will be required to give contact tracing information and sign a waiver for contact tracing. The organizer reserves the right to amend the plus one rule in order to remain in compliance with the State of New Jersey's current indoor gathering regulations.
Everyone attending is required to wear personal face coverings (approved by USA Fencing) over the nose and mouth at all times while inside, including fencers under their fencing masks while fencing. Please see the paragraph below from USA Fencing's Best Practices for the Resumption of Local Events regarding acceptable personal face coverings.
All attendees at USA Fencing tournaments will be required to wear a mask at all times, including athletes during competition. Face coverings must be two-layer cloth masks or surgical face coverings. Single-layer gaiters, bandannas, masks with vents and the Leon Paul mask or shield or similar face coverings are not permitted. Athletes who do not comply with this policy will not be allowed to compete. Other individuals, including spectators and coaches, who do not wear a mask or face covering will be assessed a Group 3 penalty for “any person not on strip disturbing order” which includes a yellow card warning for the first infraction and a black card resulting in expulsion from the venue for a second infraction. There will be no exceptions, for athletes or any other tournament attendee, to the mask mandate.
Allowance is made to remove the personal face covering briefly in order to drink liquid or eat a snack at the venue. If a fencer or “plus one” cannot wear a face covering for any reason, they should not register or attend the tournament.
Food and water must be brought by the fencer. No food or water will be provided or sold at the tournament.
Individuals, including fencers, plus-one’s, referees or others, should stay home and must not enter the fencing venue or competition if they have tested positive for, or are showing COVID-19 symptoms. A non-contact temperature check will be required by tournament organizers on each person arriving at the tournament location. Any person who has a temperature check above levels typically prescribed by health or sports authorities (usually ≥ 100.3°F), and/or is displaying any Covid-19 symptoms or is unwell will not be admitted to the tournament location and should seek further medical attention.
Social distancing at the venue will be required.
There will be salutes in place of handshakes after every bout.
Fencers should refrain from screaming or shouting after touches.
When the fencer is eliminated from the tournament, they and their plus one must exit the tournament venue immediately.
