Your health and safety. The Covid pandemic that began in 2020 continues to impact the return to sports, including rowing. The HOSR, in accordance with local regulations, will institute protocols across the venue that are intended to ensure the safety of all athletes, coaches, referees, volunteers and spectators. This includes the permanent appointment of a Chief Health Officer (CHO) that works directly with the Chief Referee. All participants agree that their own personal responsibility (masks, hygiene, social distancing, monitoring for symptoms) is critical to the health and welfare of all.  Competitors are required to be vaccinated or provide negative test within 72 hours before coming on-site.  Masks must be worn regardless of vaccination status. Spectators are strongly discouraged from attending.
