WYC Coronavirus Update - 14th July

Following the government announcement regarding the easing of the Covid restrictions from July 19th, the WYC Covid sub group have reviewed how the club will be affected. WYC will broadly adopt the approach to the lifting of restrictions regarding social distancing and gatherings. Members and visitors are requested to wear face masks when moving around the club buildings, unless exempt. The QR Test and Trace registration requirement will also continue.
Showers and changing rooms will no longer have capacity limits but members are requested to come changed for sailing where possible. Members are asked to use their judgement as to whether it is necessary to use the showers or changing rooms and access should always be via the external doors, not through the sea room.
All toilet facilities will reopen.
The bar will be open for service (cashless is still preferred but not mandatory). Once served members will be asked to leave the bar serving area. Table service will continue to be available on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Preventative measures such as increased ventilation and protective screens will remain in place.
As previously, members and visitors are requested not to visit the club if they have any Covid symptoms or have been advised to isolate. Members are also reminded to follow any ongoing government advice and also take personal responsibility for doing so when using the club facilities or when going on the water.
