· All coordinators and participants must follow any and all of the host location’s additional COVID-19 Protocols which will be communicated by coordinators.

Currently, Capitol Lakes and Oakwood have additional protocols:

· Capitol Lakes requires all visitors to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and to bring a copy of their vaccination card.
