CSSA members and Clubs should help delay transmission of COVID-19 during permitted activities by following government guidance for the territory and adapting as guidance develops.
- Maintenance and private use of members’ equipment is acceptable, subject to compliance with government guidelines.
- Maintenance and use of Club equipment and premises is acceptable, subject to compliance with government guidelines.
- Members required to self-isolate (because of symptoms of COVID-19 in their household or because of their own susceptibility) must stay away from Club facilities.
- CSSA events should be held and managed in accordance with government guidance.
Club arrangements should manage risks and prevent transmission through use of Club buildings and equipment.
RYA guidance for each of our home nations is helpful and has been regularly updated – https://www.rya.org.uk/newsevents/news/Pages/coronavirus-advice-and-information-for-recreational-boaters.aspx.
Disruption is likely to continue for some time; let’s continue to help those that help us.
Stay safe and look out for one another.
