EVENT SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES

GUIDELINES WILL BE REVIEWED AND UPDATED AHEAD OF THE EVENT AND ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE EVENT BY EVENT BASED ON LOCAL GUIDELINES AND/OR RESTRICTIONS.

The WWA has and will continue to maintain and implement social distancing guidelines at all events this year in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.  Events are only possible if we all maintain the federal, CDC, state and local guidelines.

We appreciate everyone doing their part so our events are able to operate and do not get shut down.

Attention: In accordance with the guidelines set forth, we will be taking temperatures for all event participants at rider check-in. If anyone has a temperature reading greater than 100.4* F they will not be able to remain on the event site. We encourage all participants to take their temperature before arriving at the event.

Overview
The WWA will adhere to and operate in compliance with all public health authorities and local and state government guidelines regarding social distancing pertinent to the location of the event being held. In adhering to compliant efforts onsite, event crowd numbers will not exceed the guidelines currently set forth. The WWA will provide masks to all event participants and advise that any event bystanders are wearing masks when electing to be in the vicinity of the event grounds and will be strictly advised to not congregate in large groups.

High risk individuals, including older adults and people with pre-existing medical conditions that appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus are recommended to avoid events involving groups at this time and/or to take all recommended precautions to protect themselves.

Event Procedures:
All WWA event staff will be required wear face masks throughout the duration of the event.
All participants will have their temperature taken at rider check-in each day that they ride. 
The starting dock will be limited to ONE participant and the dock starter in order to avoid unnecessary congregations of people.
There will also be ‘staging’ areas outside of the dock that only a limited number of riders will be allowed in.
Riders 9 & under may have one parent with a face covering accompany them on a dock. 
Participants should be aware of signage stating the number of individuals allowed in areas.
Participants will not be able to store their equipment in the start dock area and are advised to keep equipment with them or in their locked vehicle at all times.

 All event participants are advised to avoid person-to-person contact such as shaking hands. 
All event participants will be advised to not congregate in large groups of people to socialize while at the event site.
