General exceptions to wearing a mask/mouth-face nose protection are outlined in sport-specific appendices.
When not worn the mask must be kept in a separate container/bag (e.g. sandwich “Ziploc” bag) to prevent contamination. Disposable masks must be regularly changed and multi-use masks washed after regular use.
If necessary Organizing Committee will provide a disposable mask (free of charge) to each accredited person (i.e. 2 masks/day)

Signage to indicate safe physical distancing at points of entry should be installed, as well as plexiglass barriers and or floor markings to show the flow of traffic to respect physical distancing.
