Covid Paddling Update As Of May 20, 2020


Recommended Posts

With the gradual easing of the restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19 comes the inevitable question of how we can get back out on the water. While we’re all keen to get paddling again, NSPN expects all members to carefully read the instructions relevant for each state and abide by all the rules and regulations therein.  Relevant links are included below.

Paddling is now allowed under certain conditions and these vary from state to state. Trip initiators and participants are expected to comply with all state and local regulations in the area where they will be paddling. This includes but is not limited to group size, state residential requirements, parking regulations, water access, physical distancing, and face covering requirements. In addition, we encourage members to be cognizant of the need to reduce risks of injury/incident that would require close personal contact and/or outside assistance. We advise not rafting up and not performing other activities, such as rescue practices, that would risk being in close proximity with others.

As a Club we will be closely monitoring this situation and will post updates when they become available.  Stay safe out there and please paddle responsibly.
