Seacoast Fencing Club has been following the USA Fencing tournament guidelines for Covid-19 protocols since June 2020. On November 1, 2022, USA Fencing dropped their masking, PCR testing, and vaccination requirements. Our protocols have now changed to match theirs and are below.
Vaccination cards, PCR test results, and face coverings are no longer required. USA Fencing still recommends getting vaccinated (as do I).
The no shaking of hands at the end of bouts rule will remain in place. At our practices, a polite bow is our club’s substitute, but tapping of blades is fine.
