COVID Guidelines2023 California Invitational COVID Guidelines
We’re pleased to be hosting you in-person at the California Invitational! For the health and safety of all attendees, please read and abide by the following guidelines.
All attendees are solely responsible for following all guidelines from your institution. The California Invitational accepts no responsibility or liability for the health of tournament attendees. All participation in the tournament is at your own risk.
Vaccination against COVID-19 is strongly recommended for all tournament attendees. University policy prohibits the tournament from inquiring about the vaccination status of attendees for events like this, so there is no tournament vaccination requirement.
Masks are not currently required.
You should not travel if sick or recently exposed to COVID. All attendees should self-monitor for symptoms, and should immediately withdraw from the tournament and self-isolate if any COVID symptoms develop. Please help keep your fellow attendees safe.
All attendees are strongly encouraged to take a COVID-19 test prior to travel to the tournament, even if not symptomatic.
If you develop symptoms of COVID-19 while at the tournament, you should immediately contact local medical care (several options are listed below), NOT the tournament. We are not medical professionals, and we cannot provide you with any kind of medical care or supervision. If you need to withdraw from the tournament, you can do so by emailing the tabroom.
If you are experiencing symptoms or need medical care, here are some of the closest facilities to the U.C Berkeley campus. The tournament can not provide medical care or supervision.
