In reviewing Phase 3 Executive Orders issued by Gov Desantis I find that this order does not have any effect or precedent over the FSA Covid-19 Safety Protocols. 1. The majority of our members are in the High Risk Category 2. Each individual venue is bound to their Owner, City and County protocols. 3. The Executive Order Phase 3 deals mainly with Businesses capacities. In order to do our part to safely protect our FSA members, regardless of Executive Order Phase 3, the FSA Covid-19 safety protocols will remain in effect and strictly enforced until further notice. In order to participate in FSA State or District tournaments or FSA any FSA events all players must adhere to the safety protocols.

Preregistration will be required in order to reduce direct contact with tournament officials, insure that players are not turned away from a venue due to overcrowding and to provide players an opportunity to register at an alternative location if their first choice is at capacity. 2.

A Registrar will be appointed each week by the State Tournament Director and his/her name shall be posted on the FSA Bulletin Board.

The name of both team members, the desired venue and a contact phone number must be included in the email. Registration will be on a first come, first served basis. 4. The Registrar shall maintain a list of all players/teams for each division of each tournament scheduled for the upcoming week. 5. Once capacity is reached in any division, the Registrar will notify the Webmaster who will publish that information on the website. The Registrar will also notify any players/teams who register after a division limit has been reached, giving them the opportunity to register for an alternate venue or to be put first onto the list for the next tournament. 6. The tournament directors assigned to each tournament must similarly notify the Registrar. 7. As soon as possible after the close of registration, the Registrar will email each director a list of all entries for their respective tournaments. 8.

There will be no exception to the mask policy even with a medical excuse. 6. Masks may be removed while eating or drinking, but appropriate distance must then be maintained. a. The CDC does not recommend the use of a face shield worn in lieu of a face mask and, as such, a face shield alone is not acceptable for F.S.A. events. 7. Anyone who fails to observe any special health rules or who displays obvious signs of illness once admitted will be disqualified from the tournament and be required to immediately leave the premises.
