Social Distancing and Masking
Social Distancing & Masking
Duo performers and Public Forum debaters can be in the same room as long as they are masked!!! If they prefer to perform/compete without masks, they must be in separate rooms, even if they are siblings or live in the same household.
We will be enforcing PA guidelines for all schools.
We do ask that coaches ensure their students comply with State masking orders which are outlined here.
Particularly of note is Section 2A and 2B which state:
“every individual, age two and older, in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania shall wear a face covering when:
A. Indoors or in an enclosed space, where another person or persons who are not members of the individual’s household are present in the same space, irrespective of physical distance.
B. Outdoors with others who are not members of a person’s household and unable to maintain sustained physical distance.”
Please note that, as of this writing (1/11/2021) this means that Duo and PF competitors will need to be masked if together in the same room.
While it’s certainly not ideal to perform with masks on, we truly appreciate everyone’s efforts to ensure that Forensics can continue safely during the pandemic.
