2. IGHSAU strongly encourages all participants and spectators to practice social distancing and wear race coverings whenever possible.

3. Eliminate spectator seating in the first two rows if possible.

4. Teams are not to switch benches between sets. In the even there is a clear and distinct disadvantage, teams may switch sides, observe all social distancing protocols. Officials will determine if a disadvantage is present.
