Social Distancing Measures for USA FIT Georgetown

The safety and well-being of our members and coaches is our top priority. While training, we will be operating within the Williamson County COVID-19 guidelines.

Our preparedness plan includes considerations for:

  • Member Expectations
  • Group Expectations
  • Meeting Location
  • Pre-Training Gathering
  • Hydration Stations
  • Post-Training Gathering

Member Expectations

  • Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, shortness of breath, decrease in sense of smell or taste, aches and pains, and sore throat. STAY HOME if you have any of these symptoms or if you have a fever of 100.4F or higher.
  • Though not mandatory, members are encouraged to wear a mask or bandana as a precaution. A limited number of masks may be available on site. We understand that for many, wearing face covering may not be possible while running or walking.
  • Don't share personal items - hydration, gels, chews, towels, etc.
  • Maintain 6 feet of space at all times and don't engage in physical contact - hand shakes, high-fives, hugs, etc.
  • Group selfies must abide by social distancing guidelines - 6 feet of space and no touching.
  • Consult your doctor if you are in a high risk group for COVID-19.

Group Expectations

  • All pace groups will be split into small groups.
  • Small groups should adapt a single file or two by two formation while maintaining six feet of space.
  • Groups should maintain social distancing when stopped at lights,
    hydration stops, crossing the street, etc.
  • Groups should allow plenty of space when passing others.
  • Groups should continue to follow standard safety guidelines and use signals
    for interval run/walks and or call out for cars ahead/behind, passersby, or
    other obstructions.

Meeting Space

  • We meet at San Gabriel Park and other Georgetown venues. These will be large open spaces allowing for small groups to spread out pre- and post-training while maintaining social distancing guidelines.

Pre-Training Gathering

  • Small groups should remain separated from other pace groups and not
    organize side by side.
  • Announcements and instruction will be given directly to small groups.
  • A hand sanitation area will be available onsite.
  • Members should limit the surfaces they touch.
  • Groups will roll out every 5 minutes to stagger the start times

Hydration Stations

  • Groups should move as efficiently as possible through hydration stations
    and stand aside if not refilling.
  • Members should refill only as needed at stations to reduce the gathering of
    multiple groups around hydration stations.
  • All members are expected to self carry personal hydration in a handheld,
    hydration pack, bottle, etc.

Post-Training Gathering

  • As pace groups complete their training, participants must maintain social
    distancing.
  • Pace groups that want to complete post-run stretching must spread out and
    maintain social distance.

USA FIT Georgetown will provide additional updates and instructions through emails and
