The Tuesday Night Summer Track Series meets are being offered under USATF event sanctioning. In order to obtain insurance for the track meets, HMRRC is required to follow USATF guidance.
USATF COVID guidance was last updated 5/7/21 and may change prior to any and/or all HMRRC outdoor weekly track meets, beginning on July 6 and ending on August 10, 2021. (https://www.usatf.org/covid19/logistical-information-and-guidance-for-event-directors-and-local-organizing-committees) Below summarizes the COVID protocols HMRRC must follow for insurance purposes.
Masks: Masks will be required for everyone (athletes, coaches, volunteers, officials, etc). Athletes may remove masks when warming up or competing. Masks may be removed while eating or drinking.
Temperature Checks: Athletes, coaches, volunteers, officials, etc. will be temperature checked upon entrance to the facility. Anyone registering a temperature above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit will not be admitted.

For athletes, all events fall under Low Risk or Moderate Risk as defined by USATF. Below are the requirements for entry into Low and Moderate Risk events:

COVID Protocols to be followed for Moderate Risk Events:
Note: COVID-19 antibody testing is NOT currently accepted to meet the negative COVID-19 test criterion.

Keep an eye on HMRRC's website (www.hmrrc.com) for additional updates, including an online COVID attestation form and event waiver.
