2021 Outdoor Cup FAQs
Spectators, coaches/managers, and bench players must wear a mask at all times.
Players actively participating in the game or warm-up must wear a face covering unless the person meets the exemption in Section 3 of the Mask Order. This exemption says an individual can remove their face covering if it would either cause a medical condition, or exacerbate an existing one, including respiratory issues that impede breathing, a mental health condition or a disability.

The Department of Health asks that everyone makes best efforts to wear face coverings during athletic activities.
