COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Perform a Self-Health Check at home prior to participating in an event with the Bronx River Alliance. If you exhibit any of the following symptoms, please do NOT leave home:

  • Shortness of Breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fever (especially above 100.4 ℉)
  • Chills
  • Muscle Pain
  • Sore Throat
  • New loss of taste or smell

Wear a Face Covering

Masks/face coverings are required to participate in any on-water event with the Bronx River Alliance and must remain on for the duration of the event. A face mask must cover your nose and mouth.

Practice COVID-safe hygiene

Wear a mask/face covering whenever you leave home and cannot maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others.
Wash your hands often, using soap and water and scrub for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available and rub into hands for 30 seconds.
Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
If you have touched or repositioned your mask, it is recommended that you wash/use hand sanitizer before touching anything else.
Monitor your health more closely than usual for cold or flu symptoms.

Upon arrival at the event

Please maintain at least six feet of distance between you and others at all times, and do not touch others.
Participants will have their temperature checked upon arrival. If anyone is measured to be above the CDC-recommended threshold (currently 100.4 ℉), the temperature will be read again in 5 minutes. If the second temperature scan also is above the threshold, the person will be asked to leave immediately.
Hand sanitizer and gloves will be available at the registration table.

ACA waivers and Photo waivers must be filled out and signed before participants get out on water
