COVID-19 Procedures & Requirements:

Each team participating in the meet will abide by the COVID-19 Preparedness Plans for the facility, including entry/exit procedures into the facility and cleaning protocols. However, the following items are required for teams to participate in the meet:
1. The host team is required to include their LSC Sanction Requirements with the sanction request. Visiting Teams will enter the pool via door 7D and settle into the stands. WEST Express swimmers will enter via 7E, and all volunteers via 7F.
2. All teams may need to have anyone entering the facility for the meet to complete a waiver. If teams have already completed this in their Return to Practice procedures for swimmers and coaches, then only needs to be done for volunteers, spectators and officials for this meet.
3. Mandated capacity limits must be followed.
4. All officials, coaches, volunteers, spectators and swimmers wear a face mask at all times except for swimmers when they are in the water. Swimmers should plan on bringing extra face masks as theirs may get wet and plastic baggies to put used masks in throughout the meet.
5. Teams participating will communicate all expectations and protocols for the meet to their team participants and observers in a timely matter before the meet date to ensure all participants are clearly aware of the requirements.
6. Officials, coaches, volunteers, spectators and swimmers must maintain current social distancing guidelines throughout the meet. Some suggestions to help maintain social distancing are, but not limited to:
          a. Group swimmers within a session to an assigned area to wait in between races. This will also help with contact tracing if a positive test of COVID-19 were to be reported after the meet. These swimmers, if not in the water, should only be in their assigned area. Have swimmers bring their own chair to use during the meet or an extra towel to sit on. To comply with Safe Sport/MAAPP ensure at least 2 adult volunteers are present with swimmers when they are in areas outside of the pool deck.
          b. Add 1-2 volunteers per session to help monitor social distancing during the meet, similar to meet/safety marshals.
