The SCVA is actively monitoring the current situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19).  Our priority is the health and safety of our attendees and athletes.  The CDC continues to emphasize that the risk to the American Public remains low, and states that Americans should “go about and live their normal lives.”  However, the CDC highly recommends the following actions be taken to prevent the spread of the virus:

  1. Avoid getting close to anyone coughing or sneezing.
  2. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  4. Cover your mouth with a tissue or your elbow if you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue away, and then wash your hands.
  5. Stay home if you are sick.
  6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
  7. Monitor the WHO and CDC websites for travel advisories.

Regional Events:

The SCVA is working closely with American Sports Center and Momentous Sports Center to ensure preventative measures are in place.  American Sports Center is installing hand sanitizer dispensers on each column throughout the rows of courts.  Momentous Sports Center will be increasing the amount of hand sanitizers in high traffic areas, and will also be supplying hand sanitizers on each score keepers tables.

At this time, all regional events are being hosted as scheduled.

Inter-Regional Events (Red Rock Raves and Summer Soiree):

The SCVA is working closely with MGM Properties and Mandalay Bay to ensure preventative measures are in place.  MGM Properties are placing hand sanitizer dispensing stations in high traffic areas, adding washing stations, and increasing the frequency of disinfectant procedures.  In addition, the SCVA will be adding hand sanitizers to each score keepers table, results stations, and championships desks.

McCarran International Airport has not been advised to screen passengers for the virus. Officials for McCarran released the following, “Our custodial teams are deploying hospital-grade disinfectant on all high-touch surfaces around the airport, such as kiosks, escalators, door handles, etc.  This is not a new precaution – McCarran makes these extra efforts to sanitize every flu season.  With the emergence of the coronavirus in Clark County, we have increased the frequency of application and expanded the areas of the airport that are covered.  The disinfectant in use is recommended by the CDC to combat COVID-19 and is being applied in the highest concentration for maximum impact.”
