On behalf of Drew Davis and the entire staff of the Hilton Head Island Invitational, we want to welcome you to the 2022 Hilton Head Island Invitational.
Since there are currently no state or local mandates in place, we believe that is the responsibility of each person in attendance to make the best judgement for themselves as to whether or not to attend based on the information provided as well as whether to mask up or not.
As the hotel, city, county and state do not currently have any mask mandates in place, we will not be requiring masks but do encourage you and your families to wear a mask if that is what’s best for you. Just know that you may or may not be sitting beside someone who may or may not be wearing a mask.
Spectator Limit: At the 2022 Hilton Head Island Invitational, there will be no limit on spectators. Many sessions are completely full and could have anywhere from 200-400 spectators attending and sitting together in the chairs surrounding the competition area. If you are uncomfortable sitting in a crowd this large, please choose not to attend.
Social Distancing: The staff at the 2022 Hilton Head Island Invitational WILL NOT be assigning seats or monitoring social distancing.
If you are uncomfortable sitting among a large crowd, please choose not to attend.
Sanitizing: The Staff at the Hilton Head Island Invitational will be encouraging everyone to keep hands clean in and out of the competition areas. There will be ample opportunities both on the competition floor, in the lobby and restrooms for spectators, athletes, coaches and staff to sanitize hands with both soap and hand sanitizer.
We will be cleaning/sanitizing the spectator viewing, competition area and awards area after each session.
Masks: Masks are not required at the 2022 Hilton Head Island Invitational. Please refer to the section above regarding recommendations on wearing a mask indoors. We encourage you to make your own decision regarding a mask. What to do if you are sick:
Recommendations per the CDC for protecting yourself at mass gatherings are as follows:
If you are attending a gathering, think about the steps you need to take to protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19.
If you are not fully vaccinated and aged 2 or older, you should wear a mask in indoor public places.
In general, you do not need to wear a mask in outdoor settings.
In areas with high numbers of COVID-19 cases, consider wearing a mask in crowded outdoor settings and for activities with close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated.
People who have a condition or are taking medications that weaken their immune system may not be fully protected even if they are fully vaccinated. They should continue to take all precautions recommended for unvaccinated people, including wearing a well-fitted mask, until advised otherwise by their healthcare provider.
If you are fully vaccinated, to maximize protection and prevent possibly spreading COVID-19 to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.
If you are fully vaccinated, Testing can give you information about your risk of spreading COVID-19.
o Consider using a self-test before joining indoor gatherings with others who are not in your household.
o A positive self-test result means that you have an infection and should avoid indoor gatherings to reduce the risk of spreading disease to someone else.
o A negative self-test result means that you may not have an infection. Repeating the test with at least 24 hours between tests will increase the confidence that you are not infected.
o Ask your healthcare provider if you need help interpreting your test results.
We want everyone to have a positive experience all weekend long and we look forward to seeing all of you in a few days!
