RETURN TO ROWING

As with the previous return to rowing, any rowing that does take place MUST be risk assessed, Covid protocols must be in place and accessible to all members, mitigation actions must be followed.
Some key points to remember:

  • Social distancing where possible
  • Masks on launch and recovery
  • No changing of crews/cox during a rowing session 
  • Wearing of masks / face shields for coxes
  • Cleaning boat and equipment between rowing sessions and after use
  • Contact tracing in place (see Weekly Update 40 for QR codes / NHS tracing)

With any activity that takes place all – members rowing and non-rowing, and the general public must see that all is being done to limit any spread of Covid. Please remember that if you are using social media only publish compliant photos / videos and remember that there are others who will publish anything and even contact the CPGA if they see a club not following good practice.

CAN WE PLEASE EMPHASIS THAT ANYTHING PUBLISHED ON SOCIAL MEDIA NEEDS TO FOLLOW COVID PROTOCOL, IT IS IMPORTANT TO SHOW THAT YOUR CLUB IS FOLLOWING GUIDANCE.
