Boating Responsibly & Covid-19
As the nice weather is upon us and we are all longing to start the boating season, we strongly urge everyone to follow the social distancing restrictions that are currently in place due to Covid-19.
Do this not only to protect yourself, your family and friends, but also to show support for and respect for all the hospital employees, first responders and other essential people who are working everyday on the frontlines on our behalf. Let’s not make their jobs any more difficult than they already are!
Boating and fishing are still allowed activities under the Governor's "Stay At Home" Order, although with restrictions:
A: Yes. Boating falls within the outdoor activities permitted under the order. Any outdoor activity, including boating, must be done in a manner consistent with social distancing, and individuals should use only their own equipment to prevent the transmission of the virus through the touching of shared surfaces. Additionally, in accordance with section 2 of the order, persons not part of a single household may not boat together.
We don’t want to have boating added to the list of things that are not allowed.
Let’s boat responsibly.
