LWRC's response to combat the novel coronavirus outbreak

In Washington State as of April 15, 2021 vaccinations are open to all, age 16 and over. We encourage everyone to take advantage of these vaccination opportunities. If we are on schedule, vaccines should be available for everyone in King County by the end of May.  A fully vaccinated boathouse will allow us to open up more opportunities for everyone.

LWRC has revised our guidelines to reflect wider vaccine availability.

What remains the same for all members:

  • Wear a Mask, socially distance and use hand sanitation procedures while on the premises.

  • Move quickly in and out of the boathouse and dock to minimize density in common areas.

  • Meetings and socializing before/after practice can only occur outside.

  • Rowing allowed in 2x, 2- and 1x. While rowing, masks are advised for non-householders. Keep your pod limited to yourself and one other.

  • Guests are not allowed without permission from the Office.

  • Restricted use of the upstairs gym, locker room and lounge.

What changes for fully vaccinated members:

  • If you are fully vaccinated (two weeks out from your final shot) you may row in boats with up to four (4) other vaccinated members.

  • Use of club Fours and Quads will only be allowed under the supervision of a coach, in a scheduled program.

  • Triples can be rowed independently by vaccinated members with an experienced bow person. Contact the Captains for permission to bow.
