USMS is continuing to recommend LMSCs not sanction traditional format in-person pool meet or open water events through Aug. 31. However, this recommendation does not extend to virtual or ePostal events, for which sanctions may be considered so long as participants are directed to follow facility, local, state, and federal safety and social distancing guidelines.

  • COVID-19 Event Resources: We've put together information, resources, and updates pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic as it relates to events.

For any potential standard events (i.e., nonvirtual, in person) in the coming months, it will be imperative that plans are implemented following all guidelines to ensure the health and safety of USMS members, volunteers, and organizers.
