Return to Activity - Resources for Athletes

Special Olympics clubs are now working on getting back to training safely.​ If you have any questions, please talk to the COVID-19 Coordinator or COVID-19 Activity Lead in your Club.​ 


COVID-19 is here and it's the responsibility of everyone to help prevent or slow down the spread of the virus as it will be with us for the next while . Many of us have gotten our vaccine and we suggest that you take your vaccine when offered as it will give you more protection if you got COVID-19.  As we move to live with COVID-19 each of us are asked to continue to wear our masks , stay 2meters apart and wash our hands.
