As the summer season approaches and protocols and guidelines are evolving, TRRA will be updating our protocols as well. For the purposes of these updates, “Fully Vaccinated” will be defined as follows:

Unvaccinated individuals are still required to wear a mask while outdoors and while rowing/paddling in non-household team boats.
Fully vaccinated individuals will no longer be required to wear a mask indoors on TRRA Campus property.
Unvaccinated individuals will still be required to wear masks while indoors.

Everyone who trains indoors must thoroughly clean AND sanitize the equipment they use after every training session.
We will continue to closely monitor the scientific evolution and guidance of the COVID-19 virus as well as the requirements and recommendations of public health officials and the national governing bodies of our sports. We will continue to make adjustments to our operations and procedures as needed throughout the year to ensure the overall safety and wellbeing of our entire TRRA community.
This will continue to be a work in progress and all of us need to continue to be diligent in our efforts to follow all of these protocols and procedures each and every day.
