White Oak Park Safety Protocols 2020 Invitationals



Arrival:

Before teams arrive, they must follow all Covid-19 safety protocols set in place by their own district. In addition, they will complete a verification form. As teams arrive, each team will be informed of their designated parking area and staging zone. When athletes are not racing they should stay in this area to allow for team distancing and to maintain state-mandated event numbers*. Coaches/athletes are responsible for bringing their own water supply. Masks should be worn by all individuals at all times in this area if medically possible, with exceptions made for hydrating and eating snacks. This is where warm-ups should occur and athletes are permitted to remove their masks during warm-ups. Each staging area will have its own restroom designated area.



Racing Zone:

This zone will include the following distancing pods: the racing area, the coaching pod, the starting line, the runners' pods, and the officials' area. In these areas, masks should be worn by all individuals. Athletes will be instructed on when they may remove their masks and should arrive at their starting pod with the mask already in place.

Coaching Pods: There will be two pods where coaches may be located during their teams' race(s). Coaches are not permitted to be along the course, at the starting line, or at the finish line. This helps maintain event pod numbers.*



Starting Line: The starting line will consist of tow pods that will start in waves at two-minute intervals. Only athletes and the starting official will be permitted in this zone. Masks will be worn to the start line. After being instructed athletes will remove their masks and pin them to their uniform.



The Course: During a race, only athletes actively racing will be permitted on the course. NO previewing the course.



The Finish Line: No coaches are permitted at the finish line. If athletes need assistance an exception may be granted. Athletes will receive (1) one bottle of water at the completion of their race. More water and Gatorade will be available for purchase at a different location.



Departure:

After the completion of the final  race, teams will have 45 minutes to clear the park. This is imperative for AA teams that need to be completely gone before AAA teams may enter the park. Please be sure to police your area and leave it the same way you found it.



*All number mandates have been met and pod procedures have been approved by Allegheny County and WPIAL.

Maps will be provided at the park for a visual of zones.
