Covid-19 Planning


Our team is collaborating with City and State officials to track the status of the Covid-19 pandemic and plan our protocols accordingly. Our number one priority is the health and safety of everyone involved and we will be adjusting plans, as needed. We will continue to share news and safety protocols as we have them.

The current special event guidelines in San Diego County for outdoor events under 10,000 (as of 8/19/21) strongly recommend vaccination but does not have a requirement. Face masks and social distancing are encouraged by the CDC and CPHD.

The Challenged Athletes Foundation will continue to monitor and follow CDC recommendations along with federal, state and local regulations regarding COVID-19 to remain compliant and create a safe outdoor athletic environment.
