Continue social distancing: Keep at least 6 feet between you and anyone you do not live with.
Face masks: Strongly encouraged at the club when not eating or drinking. Let’s continue to protect each other.
Be aware of peak use times: Non-competitors be aware that the peak group training times at the club are Monday and Wednesday evenings 5-8pm, and weekend mornings 8am-noon. If you can avoid those days/times and can conveniently paddle other days or times, please do; it will help lower the overall numbers at any one time.
Guest limit: No more than two guests per member. The goal is to keep the overall numbers down to make social distancing possible.
Congregate in groups of ten or less: Whether at a table or in just in chairs, please limit groups to no more than ten people, and wear masks.
No parties: Party requests will NOT be approved until further notice (no birthdays, graduations, multi-family, -member parties, etc.).
Use of the picnic tables is permitted: Staying six feet away from others at a table is impossible so table use by non-cohabiting members is discouraged but permitted (it is permitted for outdoor dining in D.C. so we won’t disallow it). Wear masks when not eating/drinking.
Use of the grills is permitted: We will space them out.
Weight room: Still closed. Sorry.
Stay away if sick…with anything! This should be obvious.
Members or guests who have tested positive for COVID-19: If you have been at the club when you may have been or know you were infected, please let someone on the Board know so we can engage in contact tracing to let others know if they may have been exposed. We will protect your privacy as best as possible.
On Tuesday, April 6th, the club’s board approved the use of six-person team boats, in line with the protocol that was proposed by the outrigger steering committee and agreed to by the members of the men’s and women’s outrigger teams. (The protocol also applies to non-outrigger team boats larger than 2-person).
The protocol is in line with current WCC, DC, and Federal guidelines, as well as those used by local rowing teams and US Rowing.
