Dear <<First Name>>,
Continuing—Hands, Face, Space, disinfect blades and boats.
I raised the question of mask wearing at Monday's committee meeting. It was discussed and agreed that whilst we would like to soften our approach to this matter the growing problem with the infectiousness of the 'Delta Variant' is of concern. If it's sufficiently worrying that the media (sorry, I meant to say Government) is likely to delay the 21st June relaxations we, too, should take a precautionary approach.
Therefore my 'request' (for clarity, read requirement) is that if you are unable to remain at least 2m socially distanced from someone you wear a mask whilst on club premises. This means that a mask is required when boating (but not when bum-on-seat of rowing boat or ergo unless coxing) or working closely together. The ladies changing rooms should only have 2 people in it at a time, and the mens', four, because the mens' changing/bike store is larger.
And yes, this does include ALL junior groups at ALL times!
Indoor ergos/exercising should similarly be restricted to no more than 4 people with good ventilation maintained (windows and door open—please remember to close-up after use!).
I am aware this policy won't be popular. Sorry but there you are.
