NCDCTA COVID-19 Guidelines & Rules

UPDATED: 09/11/2020

Purpose: the purpose of this document is to serve as a resource to competitors, competitor support, volunteers, officials, vendors and show/facility staff regarding the North Carolina Dressage and Combined Training Association (NCDCTA) rules and guidelines while participating in USEF/USDF recognized horse shows.

These guidelines are subject to revision in accordance to changes with USEF, local, state and federal rules and regulations.

 

Per North Carolina Executive Order number 147, masks or face coverings must be worn when not mounted or exhibiting a horse on the triangle (breed show handlers).

If you plan to come to the competition grounds, you must be able to assure management that neither you nor anyone in your household:

  1. Has tested positive or has been presumed positive for COVID-19 at any time during the past 14 days

  2. Has been advised by a healthcare professional to self-quarantine at any time during the past 14 days

  3. Has been in close physical contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or who has been presumed positive for COVID-19, during the past 14 days

  4. Is subject to a quarantine order or a recommendation of a healthcare professional that, in either case, would make it inadvisable to attend a public event or competition

  5. Has, within the past 24 hours, exhibited any of the following symptoms attributed to COVD-19, including but not limited to, a fever of 99.5° or greater, cough and/or shortness of breath.

 

Social distancing guidelines must be followed at all times. Current guidelines call for a 6’ minimum spacing between individuals. Do NOT gather in groups when possible.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 30 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
