Hand Washing / Personal Hygiene / Respiratory Etiquette
Fencers are required (and will be reminded) of the importance of consistent hand washing. Participants should refrain from touching their eyes, nose, mouth, and face while participating or while wearing fencing gloves. Participants are encouraged to exhibit good respiratory etiquette (i.e., sneezing or coughing into the crook of the elbow, no spitting, no clearing of nasal passages, coughing or sneezing into a tissue). It is appropriate and encouraged for participants to carry and use their own personal hand sanitizer. No food of any kind is allowed in the club facility. The use (closure) of public water fountains / bottle re-fill stations fall under the guidelines of the partner facility. Participants should arrive with a full water bottle.
