General Health and Safety

  • With temperatures expected to be hot, Special Olympics Oregon will continue to monitor conditions and make decisions about changes to the current schedule accordingly.
  • Our goal will be to keep things moving as best we can to reduce the time spent in the sun.
  • Special Olympics Oregon uses the Oregon Scholastic Activities Association (OSAA) Heat Index Guidelines to help inform decisions about when to change schedules or cancel events.
  • There are many factors that go into final decisions and some changes may be made as late as the day of event – if conditions warrant.
  • 18-hole golfers time on course will be our greatest concern as they will be the ones still on course as temperatures continue to rise in the afternoon.
  • We will have medical volunteers on site to help support any general injuries, illness, or heat-related issues.
  • SOOR will consult with our medical teams, facilities representatives, and sport officials when making on-site heat-related decisions that may impact the schedule.
  • We will also keep open communication with coaches throughout the day.
  • Water will be available throughout the event, but teams are encouraged to bring additional water bottles, coolers, and cooling towels to help stay hydrated and safe.
  • Please continue to hydrate in the days leading up to the event.
