ORC and COVID-19

Mar 16, 2020

Dear ORC members,

In response to the COVID-19, the ORC training at the YMCA is cancelled until further notice given the YMCA facility closure.

ORC Program coaches will work with athletes to arrange alternate individual training at this time instead of ergometer sessions. The ORC Head Coach will direct coaches when group training sessions can continue. For the coming month(s), any athlete that is ill, who have been in contact with someone who is ill, or who have recently been travelling internationally should not attend any group training session. In addition, athletes, coaches, and all members are encouraged to follow the advice of medical professionals around hand washing and social distancing until further notice.

The ORC will be monitoring developments to determine if any precautions need to be taken for the start of our on-water season starting April 25, 2020.

The response to COVID-19 affects us all. We look forward to welcoming you to the ORC once circumstances improve. Please keep an eye on ORC’s social media for further news and updates surrounding the COVID-19 situation and training recommendations.

The Executive Board
