Due to the pandemic caused by COVID-19, and in order to protect the players and citizens of Los Cabos, the Abierto de Tenis Mifel created a security program which will be responsible for planning and operating all security measures and protocols to guarantee and safeguard the health of all players and staff in the tournament.
The ATC SAFETY PROGRAM will follow all of the local authorities’ pandemic guidelines as well as the security measures required by the ATP.
Players and ATP staff must remain inside a designated area created by the tournament called “Green Zone” whenever they are at the hotel and at the Tournament’s facilities, this will ensure total isolation for the players and staff.
All those who will be in the “Green Zone” must do an antigen test when arriving at the hotel and must present the negative result in order to be accepted by the Tournament. In addition, they must realize an antigen test with a period of two days in between each test.
All the tournament’s personnel, suppliers, and sponsors must also take an antigen test and have a negative result in order to be accepted in the Tournament. In addition, they must realice antigen tests with a period of two days in between each test.
