WHAT'S NEW ABOUT 2021: As you probably suspect, there are still many uncertainties that remain around organizing large in-person groups, so we ask for your patience and flexibility. We are still working things out as “stuff” keeps changing every day and it is complicated. The most important to remember is at the core we are still the running/walking group you have known and love. We will get through this together and have the best season ever! For newbies, you will love us!
SAFETY #1: Join us for "in-person" training! Many members are already vaccinated but we will still ask people to be respectful and wear a mask when in close proximity to others - but not when running/walking and training if you are vaccinated. Please carry a mask with you during training in case you need to go into a business/gas station for bathroom use, to make a purchase or near others.
In accordance with the latest COVID public health order by the State of California Department of Public Health (CDPH) that went into effect on June 15, 2021 (here) and at the direction of USA FIT, we are now following county guidelines as we meet together during 2021 season.
-There are no longer distancing or capacity limits
-Face masks are not required to be worn by vaccinated individuals but vaccination status will not be verified or enforced
-Participants will be made to feel comfortable if they choose to wear face masks for any reason, regardless of vaccination status
-non-vaccinated individuals are strongly encouraged to wear a mask
The CDPH will continue to monitor scientific evidence and will amend their guidance as needed, so our plans will be fluid as public policy changes.
If you have questions or concerns please reach out to Georgiana Boewer, Organizer Georgiana@usafitsanjose.com
Should I attend the San Jose Fit activities without wearing a mask?
Circumstances may vary and individuals should consider their needs, situation, and health concerns first. Those who are feeling sick, have experienced any symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days, or have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days should continue to stay home to protect the health of others.
