Covid-19 Protocols

Beach Blitz is committed to respecting the latest science and adhering to the latest restrictions and guidance from our venue, Orange County, and the State of California. We are outlining tentative protocols below which adhere to those current requirements. However, our protocols will change as the venue, county, and state update their requirements.

Masks

Masks are required in all indoor spaces at Beach Blitz regardless of vaccination status. This applies to all people over the age of two in attendance at the event, including team members, mentors, volunteers, and spectators.

Vaccinations & Testing

We are currently working to finalize our vaccination and testing requirements. Beach Blitz highly encourages everyone to get vaccinated, if able. Visit myturn.ca.gov to book an appointment today!

Spectators

Spectators will likely be limited to only those within a team's limited capacity. We will provide an update soon.

Best practices for the unvaccinated

Stick with your own team as much as practical, physically distance from others when possible, stay home if you were exposed to a positive case of Covid-19. If you are able, get vaccinated today.

Best practices for everyone

Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly, stay home if you’re feeling unwell.

Travel

There is currently no travel advisory for California. However, CDPH is encouraging those who are unvaccinated to delay travel until they are fully vaccinated and, if they do not delay travel, getting tested before and after. Beach Blitz will accept applications from teams regardless of their location and encourages teams and individuals to make responsible travel decisions.
