Worcester Fencing Club COVID-19 Guidelines
Updated COVID Rules at Worcester Fencing
Effective March 15, face masks will no longer be required for participation at Worcester Fencing Club, with the following caveats:
- Those who are unvaccinated, or at increased risk for COVID (or have regular close contact with someone who has increased risk) should continue to wear a mask while in the facility.
- USA fencing continues to require masks for sanctioned competitions, so if you are planning to fence in an upcoming event you should continue to wear a mask to best prepare.
- To reduce congestion, we continue to ask that only one spectator per minor-age child remain in the facility during classes or training.
- If you are not feeling well, stay home.
- Should circumstances change, the mask policy will be reintroduced.
