    BayAreaChess is scaling back tournaments until the COVID-19 threat has been contained to the following locations, all in our home county:

    1. Cupertino Juniper (map)
    2. Palo Alto Unitarian Universalist Church (map)
    3. San Jose / BAC Center (map)
    4. Santa Clara Convention Center (map)

    For all these small events, in addition to the latest CDC and local guidelines:

    • We are asking only players and TDs enter the playing area.
    • We asking that you do not attend if:
      1. You are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms.
      2. You have visited any countries in the CDC Level 2 or 3 list in the last 14 days (e.g., China, Hong Kong, Italy, Iran, Japan, and South Korea).
      3. You have been in contact with anyone who is infected with the COVID-19 virus or shows symptoms of being infected.
    • When you play in tournaments during this time. We ask you to:
      1. Wash your hands frequently.
      2. Smile and wave to start and end your game.
      3. Bring sanitizer or other supplies to keep yourself safe.
    • BayAreaChess cannot make any guarantees and we encourage you to use your best discretion regarding attendance, especially if you, or your family members, are in a high-risk group.
