LWRC's response to combat the novel coronavirus outbreak

In Washington State vaccinations are open to all, age 12 and over. We encourage everyone to take advantage of these vaccination opportunities. A fully vaccinated boathouse will allow us to open up more opportunities for everyone.

  • Masks must be worn indoors at all times by all members regardless of vaccination status.

  • Fully vaccinated individuals do not need to wear a mask outdoors but MUST wear a mask indoors.

  • If you are not fully vaccinated, use must wear a mask on LWRC property including the dock.
