Tonbridge Canoe Club Procedures during the Coronavirus pandemic - Updated 19 July 2021
All visits to the club outside scheduled club sessions should continue to be recorded by using the NHS Covid-19 app to scan the QR code displayed at the club on arrival or by completing the online attendance logging form AFTER your visit via this link : attendance logging form. Attendance at scheduled session may be recorded by signing the attendance sheet provided or by one of the alternative methos detailed above.
Members who are self isolating or symptomatic with the virus must not visit the club.
Members who discover that they may have been carrying the virus when they attended the club should inform the club secretary as soon as possible so that other members can be alerted. No personal information will be released.
There is limited access to the changing rooms - details of maximum numbers permitted in the changing rooms at the same time are displayed within the premises. It is recommended that you arrive ready to paddle and avoid using the changing rooms if possible. The social room and kitchen are currently out of bounds. The wearing of masks when inside the premises is also recommended.
The club will provide hand sanitiser and equipment cleaning spray at the clubhouse, but availability cannot be guaranteed so please also bring your own to clean your hands before you arrive, and after you have left the club.
Owners/users of privately owned equipment - You will be able to access the boat store as normal, to paddle when you wish to. You must clean the locks, door handles etc when you arrive and leave for your safety and also the safety of any members using the boat store after you. Please clean the contact points on your own equipment after use in case another member needs to move it in the clubhouse for some reason.
Users of club equipment - All of the above points apply, plus we strongly recommend you sanitise all the contact points on any club equipment you want to use BEFORE you use it, and you MUST do so AFTER using it..
As with everything else we do at the moment everybody’s safety depends on all of us doing our bit to stop the virus spreading. It is imperative that you follow the Government and Club guidelines, particularly regarding numbers, social distancing, cleaning of equipment and attendance logging.
This instruction will be reviewed and further communications will be issued when official guidance is updated
