Summer 2022 COVID-19 and Virus Guidelines

WRRA has resumed all normal boathouse and rowing activities.  However, it is important to realize that there is no guarantee of not contracting COVID-19, even if fully vaccinated and/or boosted.  Individuals should use their own judgment regarding their health and safety and continue to practice the safe protocols they deem necessary.

It should be noted that ongoing monitoring of COVID-19 case rates and hospitalizations is necessary given the continuing mutations of COVID-19 and may necessitate reinstating further restrictions in the future. Cleveland Rowing Foundation (CRF) will monitor CDC and State guidelines and communications and will promptly inform WRRA of any changes impacting the boathouse and rowing operations.

All individuals are encouraged to continue to practice current safety protocols as recommended by the State of Ohio and the CDC for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.
