Health and safety continues to be our top priority. In coordination with the USTA Medical Advisory Committee, USTA Eastern has developed a practical set of guidelines for venues, players and tournament organizers to follow as we proceed. It is important to follow these guidelines, be responsible and adhere to local government and health official mandates, which can vary by region. Additionally, the section has convened active task forces to manage this situation. These task forces will continually update guidelines and play formats in the coming months as restrictions ease and the outlook improves. Thank you for your patience as we work together to provide the best opportunities for players.
