Updated COVID Policies
Effective June 1, 2022

We have continued to track multiple data points of the COVID pandemic in the city, county and state. In particular we are tracking protocols, responses and unfortunately outbreaks in other rowing and athletic organizations.

Our team of advisors which include medical doctors, COVID researchers and public health specialists have briefed us on the behavior and seriousness of the Alpha and Delta variants of COVID as well as “long-covid”. They are in full support of the following updated RRC COVID protocols which are now being implemented in response to the spread of the Delta Variant.

  • Indoor Training: Indoor training in the boat bays is permissible, on the condition that all front doors, main bay doors, and side bay doors are open fully for maximum airflow. Athletes must remain socially distanced by the recommended 10 feet or more. Indoor training in any the upstairs rooms or back storage areas is not permitted.

  • Masks: Masks are strongly encouraged per CDC recommendations, but not required inside or outside the boathouse.

  • Health Monitoring: Each athlete must answer a set of health questions daily upon arrival at the boathouse. If a coach determines that the athlete is displaying symptoms based on their answers, the athlete will not be permitted to participate in practice.

  • Contact Tracing: Athletes must also fill out a virtual sign-in form when they arrive at the boathouse with their full name, date, arrival and departure time.

  • Vaccinations: No proof of vaccinations are required in order to participate in any levels of our programs. Per CDC recommendations, we encourage all of our athletes and community members to receive the recommended vaccinations and boosters.
