The districts of Košice and the surrounding remained in the 2nd degree of danger for this week - in burgundy color, so the organizers of the 47th Rally Košice must ensure compliance with several hygienic measures for their event. A Hygiene Manual has been issued for the participants of the competition, which must be accepted and followed.
The Košice rally will take place in the OTP mode, which means that only persons completely vaccinated, tested or persons who have overcome Covid 19 no more than 180 days ago can take part in it. For domestic participants, they must demonstrate at least the antigen test not older than 48 hours. Foreign participants need a PCR test not older than 72 hours. All these measures apply not only to members of the competition teams, but also to the organizers, track commissioners, technical and sports commissioners, delegates, timekeepers and all other officials or media representatives.
The service car park will be divided into sectors, which can only consist of a predetermined number of participants. Only persons (OTP) listed in the list of participants who will receive a bracelet for entering the relevant sector upon entering the premises will be allowed to enter the competition premises. The organizers will check that there is no mixing of people from different sectors. A matter of course in the whole area is using protection masks for all people. The complete hygiene manual is part of the Bulletin No. 2, which are published on the official website of the organizer kosice.rallye.sk.
