The Boeing Classic operates under, and complies with, current State of Washington and King County COVID-19 guidelines as well as PGA TOUR.
For this year’s tournament, there are no capacity limitations or physical distancing requirements outside on the 2,200-acre course. In addition, all attendees who plan to use a tournament shuttle from the parking lots are required to wear a mask for the duration of the shuttle ride, regardless of vaccination status.
Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases caused by the rapid spread of the delta variant, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced its recommendation on July 27th that fully vaccinated people wear masks indoors when in areas with "substantial" and "high" transmission of COVID-19, which currently includes nearly two-thirds of all U.S. counties. In light of this guidance and out of an abundance of caution, the PGA TOUR has updated the PGA TOUR Mask Policy for all of the PGA TOUR Champions events.
