**Coronavirus update – 28th May 2020**
Leicester rowing club remains officially closed. However, limited club facilities are available for use to allow for water outings to take place with some restrictions. A Covid-19 specific risk assessment and a supplemental set of club rules specific to Covid-19 have been written and are available on the safety page. To take part in water sessions you must have read both the Covid-19 risk assessment and supplemental rules, signed a declaration, attended a briefing with the club captain and have been approved by the club captain or your squad leader. Water sessions must be booked in advance and approved by a squad leader.
The club committee continues to meet via video link once a week to discuss any updates related to the Covid-19 pandemic and how this will impact the running of the club. Any updates will be communicated via email in the usual way. Unless you have booked a water session then please stay away from the rowing club until told otherwise.
