As concerns grow related to the current weather conditions and forecast around the state, our shared priority is the safety and well-being of the students and school personnel of our member schools. We have made the decision to move the State Congress event on February 14-15 to a virtual platform.

OAP Changes to Face Covering Requirements and Updates 2/8/21

To remain consistent with the UIL COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Guidelines, the UIL has amended the requirement released January 8, 2021, requiring face coverings while performing in One-Act Play.

Per the UIL COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Guidelines in accordance with Executive Order GA-29: All employees, parents, visitors and students 10 years of age or older must wear face coverings or face shields upon entry to an area where UIL activities are being conducted and when not actively practicing or playing in the contest, unless an exception listed in the Risk Mitigation Guidelines applies.

One-Act Play participants must wear face coverings in all other aspects of the contest except when performing onstage.

Safety protocol requirements may vary from site to site. Local site protocols, which may require wearing face coverings while performing, must be followed by participating schools. Spectator capacity may be limited to less than the 50% allowed in the UIL Risk Mitigation Guidelines. Host sites shall communicate safety protocol requirements to the contest manager, directors and adjudicators at least 21 days before the contest for zone, district and bi-district contests. Protocols for region and state sites will be posted by April 1 on the UIL website.

The updated SPRING 2021 OAP Planning Guide is posted on the Resources and Forms page, the Contest Manager's page and Director pages.
