Phase 2 of reopening business during a global health crisis and national social crisis has begun in Massachusetts. Here is what that means for PVRC:
During Phase 1 PVRC was strictly a boat rental business. During Phase 2 PVRC technically resumes organized programming although in reality, very little will change since we cannot add team boats.
Gatherings of more than 10 people are (still) not permitted by the City of Springfield.
Two rowers, more than 6 feet apart, will now help each other carry single sculls to/from water. Coaches will continue to direct procedures for equipment cleaning and disinfection.
The boathouse and lockers are still off-limits except for one-at-a-time bathroom use. Professional weekly bathroom cleaning has restarted, with disinfection as an added service.
PVRC has a supply of hand sanitizer including a bottle which always hangs in the door at the covered boathouse entrance.
Please continue to wear a mask when on land at PVRC and act under the assumption that everyone you see is an asymptomatic covid-19 carrier.
Thank you for continuing to be a part of PVRC through the crises of our time,
