2021 Program Safety Policies

Programs are planned as outlined below, but the Rice Creek Boat Club will follow any Minnesota Department of Health recommendations and make changes as needed as the COVID-19 pandemic health progresses. We will prioritize the safety of our participants and coaches.

COVID-19 Safety Measures:

  • Face coverings are mandatory in any RCBC programs and events unless otherwise stated.Social distancing is expected, and therefore we will focus our programs on using solo boats.
  • The exception would be boat-sharing for those in the same household or “bubble”.
  • We will limit our programs to 10 participants, and stagger our program schedules so only one group is meeting at a given time.
  • We will disinfect paddles between programs.
  • Participants will be encouraged to bring their own lifejackets, and wash hands following sessions.
  • We will limit the number of people in the boathouse at a time, and doors will remain open to increase airflow.
