SCCA COVID-19 Event Protocol Update

Based on the revised CDC guidelines surrounding COVID-19 released May 13, 2021, we are revising the SCCA COVID-19 Event Protocol for participants, event support, staff and drivers as follows for all National-led events. We recommend this course of action for Regions as appropriate, and as local guidelines allow.


  • If you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, masks are no longer required indoors or outdoors UNLESS local regulatory authorities or venues have specific mask requirements in place.
  • If you are not vaccinated, you may still attend and participate in SCCA events. However, in line with the latest CDC guidelines, it is recommended that you continue to wear a mask indoors and when near others. This is subject to any mask requirements by local regulatory authorities and/or venue management.
  • When in doubt, all event organizers should continue to “look local” to ensure we meet any and all local COVID-19 protocol requirements.
  • Regardless of any national or local directives, all individuals remain free to wear a mask in any setting at any SCCA event, should they choose to.

Additional Guidelines

SCCA National Staff is reviewing and updating special-case guidelines for loaner helmets, passenger ride-alongs and similar event-specific elements where necessary. Watch for further updates.
