Ozark Association leadership is leaning strongly toward taking all precautions and time necessary to protect the health and safety of all our members and their families. However, the following "articles" appeared in recent newsletters for your consideration and/or assistance.
From a recent Associations Committee Newsletter:
                                 Return to practice and competitions

Each association, club coach and local organizer should consult their local health authorities for guidance. The top priority continues to be the health, wellness, and proper behaviors of all members to avoid infection.  Return to competition timeline is unknown at this time, though the USATF COVID-19 Task Force is formulating a ‘return to play’ plan which will be released soon.

Up-to-date information:

Because the situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) is rapidly changing, USATF has developed the  USATF.org/COVID19 website to help communicate updated information to athletes, coaches, athlete representatives, event organizers, volunteer leaders and members.

USATF COVID-19 Guidelines


COVID-19 is THE topic of conversation these days.  Some states are relaxing stay-in-place orders while others are moving more slowly. In mid-March, USATF created a COVID-19 Working Group to advise the organization on its response. The Working Group consists of distinguished professionals in medicine, public health, immunology, and virology and has created a webpage as well as Guidelines, Recommendations, and General Information on COVID-19, and Logistical Information and Guidance for Event Directors and Local Organizing Committees. These pages are updated regularly and contain the most up-to-date information available.  Please look at them carefully and stay safe and healthy!
