New ACBL COVID policy

Effective May 13, 2024, the requirement to wear masks when masked opponents ask is reduced from “must” to “should”. Moreover, players who wish their opponents to mask must provide them. The tournament is still expected to provide hand sanitizer. Tournaments no longer need to designate a safety officer.

Vaccination proof may no longer be required to play in tournaments; however, all these policies may potentially be superseded by local laws or policies.

A note to tournament organizers: In case your tournament publicity is inconsistent with the new policies, feel free to update it to reflect these changes. Send any new flyer to [email protected] for posting.
