COVID-19 Safety Guidelines
APA is working to develop a safety plan that complies with all current Clark County, Nevada event-related COVID-19 protocols. That plan must be approved by Clark County and adhered to by APA.
Participants should expect to follow Clark County safety guidelines throughout the Poolplayer Championships. If restrictions allow for spectators, they will need to plan to follow all safety guidelines as well.
