The Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association (MTHA) and the Maryland Jockey Club (MJC) have released procedures for access to the backside at MJC facilities. The restrictions are designed to help keep the spread of COVID-19 in check and are effective immediately.
For traveling between the Mid-Atlantic region of Pennsylvania, Delaware, West Virginia, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., horsemen are required to submit a weekly negative PCR test. When traveling from all other states, a five-day quarantine is required and a negative test must be submitted after the quarantine period. International travelers must quarantine for seven days and submit a negative test afterward.
If testing positive, the test must be submitted and clearance obtained to regain access. Rapid tests are not accepted. Failure to follow quarantine protocols will result in fines and suspension of access. Test results should be sent to [email protected] For more information, contact Diana Piñones in the MTHA Racetrack Office at 410-902-6844.
