COVID-19 Safety Guidelines
Event Size and Schedule: Field sizes will be limited to 20 athletes and sections will be separated by approximately 20 minutes to facilitate social distancing.
Event Grounds Entry: We will have controlled entrances for staff, officials, and athletes where we will take temperatures using a touchless infrared thermometer upon entry into the facility. Prominent informational signs will be placed at the entrance to state that masks are required to enter the facility. These signs will also state that individuals should not enter the facility if they are sick or have symptoms. In accordance with CDC guidelines, anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or greater will not be allowed inside the stadium. This includes athletes, who will then not be allowed to compete. Also, in order to enter, all athletes, coaches, staff, and personnel will need to fill out a one-page symptom survey and a liability form upon facility entry.
Face Masks: Event staff and officials will be required to wear face masks during the event. Athletes will be asked to wear face masks when in the competition facility but not while warming-up, competing, or cooling-down.
Sanitation: We will set up sanitation stations at the entrance and in warm-up areas. Prominent informational signs will be placed in high traffic areas to promote frequent handwashing using the sanitation stations.
Social Distancing: At the check-in area, markings of 6-foot increments will be placed on the ground to ensure social distancing. We will not have concession stands at the event and athletes should bring any food or drinks they need during the competition. The event will take place in a public park.
Spectators: Parents and coaches will be allowed to enter the facility but will not be allowed on the track. Spectators will have to either stay in the stands or around the fence surrounding the track. All non-competing individuals will be required to wear masks while in these areas.
