USA Fencing changed their Covid protocols last Wednesday, and since Seacoast has been following their protocols since the beginning of the pandemic, we are changing our protocols as well.
Fencers will no longer have to wear breath masks under their steel masks while fencing on our strips, or during blade drills and lessons! This change will make the activities much more pleasant, of course, but the big effect will be in improved air flow and increased cooling via breathing.
However, breath masks must be worn at all other times while in the building. From the time you enter the building until the time you leave. Except, of course, while drinking, which has been allowed since the beginning.
Our team meet on Sunday, May 22 will follow the above protocols. See the more info page on askFred for our upcoming D Meet on June 11 & 12 for competition protocols.
