COVID-19 Safety Plan Details 

Local COVID19 protocol
There are no state-wide orders regarding COVID protocols in South Dakota.  The host city, Pierre, SD also does not have any mandates in place. The city website offers this statement: “Safety protocols impact each organization differently, and each organization is empowered to make decisions that are best for it.”  The hosting facility is the Oahe Family YMCA.  As of 8/25/2020 they have entered Phase 4 of their reopening plan.  Open swim, locker room, shower and sauna use has resumed.  Children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by an adult.  Daily member health verification consists of : “temperature check and health status verification upon entering the facility – if you feel unwell, stay home.”   
Venue cleaning protocol
The Oahe Family YMCA will provide cleaning of the facility before and after the event. During the event we will provide a volunteer to wipe down frequently used surfaces (door handles, pool ladders, etc) on an hourly basis with a sanitizing cloth.
Attendee screening
The Oahe Family YMCA requires a temperature check and health screening of all individuals entering the facility.  We will also have participants fill out the USMS Attendee screening form in the event that the Oahe Family YMCA health screening does not cover all points on the document.
Masking requirement and enforcement
Face masks will be mandated at all times for all participants, officials, and volunteers.  Face masks will be provided in a zip lock “swag bag” for all participants and also available for any officials and volunteers.  Participants will be made aware of the mask requirement during the registration process and reminded again upon entering the venue.  Swimmers are expected to put their mask back on when they exit the pool.  Bags will be available at the starting blocks for swimmers to store their masks and towels during the race.
Registration and check-in
Registration is done online before the event.  No on-deck registration is planned.  Social distancing and mask use is recommended during the check-in process.
Warm-ups and distancing
Swimmers will be encouraged to space themselves out during warm-ups.  Attempt to limit the number of swimmers per lane and discourage congregating at the walls.
Venue restrictions
Participants can access all areas of the Aquatic Center. The YMCA building areas are off limits.
Camping and social distancing
Participants will remain in their camp area until their race.  They should use social distancing and wear masks while in camp areas.  They will report to the staging area 2 heats prior to their event.  They will be wearing their masks.  Cheering from the ends of the pool will be discouraged.
Race entry and exit protocol
Swimmers will wait in the staging area until the previous heat has left the water.  They will approach the blocks from the right side (staging area will be near zero depth entry) of the pool and deposit their mask and any other belongings in the designated area/bag.  After the race they will immediately leave the water, retrieve their belongings, and put their mask back on.  They will exit the starting area to the left side (bleacher) of the pool.
