Covid Protocols & Policy



These are the protocols we have adopted
to keep everyone safe

Vaccination – All coaches and athletes must be fully vaccinated and appropriately boosted to participate.

Masks – Masks are optional when indoors (Erg Room), outdoors, and on the water.

Disinfecting – We will continue to disinfect the oar grips and erg handles after each row.  Ergs are to be wiped with disinfectant after each use.

Coxswains – Are strongly encouraged to place a finger cot (AB will supply) over the microphone. Please dispose of properly after practice. Coxswains in stern coxed boats are strongly encouraged to wear a mask.

Testing – To the extent free testing is available at your school, weekly testing will be required. Athletes in the other sports are required to do so.  We will do the same.

Quarantine – Do not come to practice or a regatta if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or if you test positive. In that case, notify your coach ASAP. You will then be required at a minimum to follow applicable CDC Guidelines before returning to practice or participating in a regatta. If you have close contact* with someone who tests positive or experiences symptoms, then you may have to quarantine if you are 18 or older and have not received a booster.  Because all coaches and athletes are fully vaccinated, we anticipate that most of you will not be required to quarantine as a result of close contact.

Arlington-Belmont Crew COVID policy follows the lifting of restrictions from various Federal and State agencies. As well, AB typically follows the lead of the Arlington and/or Belmont Board of Health and of course, anyone is free to wear a mask if they so choose.
