CRI Vaccination Requiremen

For Participants Registered in any Winter Program at CRI

  • Between Monday Jan 10 and prior returning to the boathouse for programming - we ask that our registered winter participants to affirm proof of vaccination with your coach:

    • Coaches must affirm proof of vaccination for each individual registered for winter programs - please help them by sharing your vaccination status when asked.

    • This is a one-time check for registered participants in our programs - once participants have affirmed their proof of vaccination, they will not need to reaffirm proof of vaccination until/unless the same is required for spring programs.

    • For a list of what may be shown as proof of vaccination, see this page

    • Please do not share paper or electronic copies of your vaccination card with CRI.

For individual participants, volunteers and/or visitors to the Boathouse

  • For individual participants, visitors, or anyone else entering the boathouse for longer than a quick visit, proof of vaccination will be required upon entrance for every visit.

  • Please be prepared to share your proof of vaccination and government issued ID to a member of our front desk staff.

  • For those who are making a “quick visit'' (e.g., package/mail dropoff, first floor bathroom visit), the City of Boston guidance currently indicates that these visits do not require proof of vaccination for entrance, however masking continues to be required in order to enter the building.

 

Step 3:  CRI encourages everyone planning to return to the boathouse to get tested for Covid-19

Staff and participants alike are strongly encouraged to get tested for Covid as frequently as personalloy practical. Even if you are feeling fine or did not travel over the holiday, getting tested helps protect you and our community.
