In accordance with University Policy, which requires mask wearing in high density areas such as classrooms and indoor instructional spaces, we are requiring masks for all competitors and their guests in the venue throughout the day. Competitors and/or guests that do not comply will be asked to leave the venue. If the guest of a minor is asked to leave, the minor will also be asked to leave and be disqualified from the remainder of the competition.

All attendees (competitors + guests) must show valid proof of a negative test for COVID-19 within 96 hours (4 days) of the competition. A rapid test is acceptable proof for a negative result. The date when the test is conducted is what matters, not the date when the results are received. Any test conducted earlier than Tuesday, March 29th is insufficient for entrance to the competition.
Along with a negative test document, a valid ID must be shown and checked at the registration desk on the day of the competition. Any proof sent electronically to the organizers and/or delegates prior to the competition will not be accepted.
