May 10 - USEF Announces COVID-19 Action Plan Update Regarding Face Coverings
The USEF has announced that on May 17th, they are updating the mask requirement for attendees at USEF-licensed competitions. In part, the new rule reads, "any individual who is fully vaccinated is no longer required to wear a face covering/mask at USEF competitions when outdoors and at least six feet from any other individuals, except individuals in the same immediate household. However, if you enter an area that is fully or partially indoors, you must wear your face covering/mask and stay socially distanced. Since there is a likelihood that you will enter an indoor area while at a competition, stay prepared and keep a face covering/mask with you at all times." This update of the USEF's Covid-19 Action Plan will be in effect for the Santa Fe shows on May 29-31 and June 3-6, so those of you planning to attend should take note.
