Increased COVID-19 mitigation measures during VISC sailing events – masks to be worn
As you are all aware, few days ago the Austrian authorities have increased the COVID-19 alert for Vienna to ‘orange’ and have urged increasing adherence to safety measures, including avoiding gathering in groups, respecting the one-meter physical distancing and the use of masks. The VIC-based organizations are also increasing their measures accordingly.
Therefore, in an effort to ensure everyone’s safety and wellbeing, effective 17 September 2020, we ask you to wear masks in all common spaces at Hofbauer Sailing School during our usual Thursday sailing, including on the jetty as we cannot guarantee one-meter physical distancing. We will not be admitting those without masks. VISC will no longer be gathering inside the common area, including the balcony and you are encouraged not to hang around in groups after the sailing is finished.
The measures will apply to all VISC-organized group events going forward. We thank you for your cooperation and hope to see you on the water for the remainder of the season.
Anya, VISC Commodore
