COVID-19 PROTOCOL

For this tournament to be a safe event, we require everyone's cooperation! We ask everybody to follow these guidelines and to not endanger others, otherwise you can lose your accreditation, which also means that you won´t be allowed to go back into the venue!

General Measures
All participants must agree to abide the following preventative measures:

  • Keep a minimum distance of 2 meters (6.5 ft) between yourself and those living in another household (except during play) - indoor and outdoor!
  • It is mandatory to wear face masks indoor all the time (including venue, hotel, public transport).

You can take off you mask:

  • In your hotel room, when you are alone/with your roommate
  • During exercise (warm-up, match, practice)
  • While eating or drinking

Reccomendations:

  • It is recommended that you wear the mask outdoors (when interacting with others) as well.
  • Practice a good hand hygiene: Regularly wash/disinfect your hands!
  • Limit external contact: When you are not at the venue, please stay at the hotel. Short walks (eg. getting take-away) are fine, but avoid other people!
  • Limit internal contact: Don't go to crowed areas or hang around with other players, coaches or officials outside your traveling group.
  • Test regularly: Mandatory testing for all participants after 48h. Every second day.

COVID TESTING

There will be mandatory testing for all participants on the day of arrival and after another 48h.

We will offer two type testing :

  • PCR (110 €)
  • The screening antigen test (no reservation needed) (20 €)

The screening antigen test will be preformed in hotel DRAŠ.
For PCR test you will need to book an appointment where medical staff will perform test.

More detailed information regarding PCR schedule will be posted soon. Stay tuned.

Health checks

Short health checks (taking body temperature, asking for symptoms) will be done on everyone entering the venue. Anyone with temperature over 37,8° C measured on the forehead will have to wait for a second temperature check. Should the second temperature check confirm the temperature, it will be treated as a potential symptom (see next paragraph).

In case of symptoms

If you have any of the following symptoms of COVID, inform the Tournament Director Matevž Šrekl immediately, so that a COVID test can be arranged!

  • Fever or chills
  • Dry cough, sore throat
  • Tiredness
  • Aches and pains
  • Diarrhea
  • Headaches
  • Loss of taste or smell

In case of a positive test

If a person tests positive, they have to self-isolate either in the venue or in their hotel room, until the local health authorities have decided on a course of action. If players are unable to play due to isolation or testing responsibilities, they are withdrawn from the tournament. Please be aware that the interpretation of tests and the following procedure will be decided by the local health authorities (not by the organizers)!

Costs and insurance

The organizer and BEC cannot be held accountable for any costs incurred related to COVID-19 during the tournament like further tests, quarantine or medical care (eg. hospitalization). These costs have to be paid by the person involved! It is up to each participant to insure themselves.
